Nottingham Forest midfielder Liam Bridcutt is on loan with the Imps from the City Ground and impressed for the Sincil Bank side in last night’s League One defeat.

A number of Lincoln City fans have taken to Twitter following their side’s 1-0 defeat against Rotherham United in League One to praise Nottingham Forest loanee Liam Bridcutt as the City Ground-owned player put in an impressive shift on his loan debut for the Imps.

The midfielder left the City Ground on Deadline Day in January to join Lincoln on loan until the end of the season. The 30-year-old has only made 28 appearances for Forest in the Championship since he joined from Leeds United for £1 million in 2017 (BBC Sport).

Michael Appleton opted to name Bridcutt in his starting line-up against Rotherham last night, which came as a surprise to some. However, the midfielder certainly repaid his manager’s faith in him with his performance.

Bridcutt spent the first-half of the season on loan at fellow League One side Bolton Wanderers. He made 11 league appearances for the Trotters, and their supporters were disappointed not to see him return in January.

The midfielder’s contract at the City Ground comes to an end in June, so he’ll be free to leave on a free transfer.

It wasn’t ever likely that he’d be given a chance under Sabri Lamouchi. The Reds already have a host of quality options to choose from in midfield.

That being said, Bridcutt didn’t do a lot wrong at Forest. He’ll be a good addition for any League One side and seems to have already made an impression at Lincoln.

Here’s what some of the Sincil Bank fans made of the 30-year-old’s performance:
