Nottingham Forest slipped to their second defeat under Chris Hughton’s management, losing 2-0 to Barnsley at Oakwell.

The Reds succumbed to two goals in the last five minutes from Callum Sykes and Cauley Woodrow.

Ironically it was one of Forest’s better performances of the campaign and on another day they’d have left with three points.

One man who continues to shine for the Reds is winger Anthony Knockaert.

He was once again part of everything good about Forest’s performance and deserved to be on the winning side.

The 29-year-old doesn’t have an assist to his name yet in a Forest shirt but quite how is a mystery.


Knockaert checked in on loan from Fulham and his fleet footed style of play has certainly caught the eye.

Supporters were certainly happy with his performance yesterday and took to Twitter to react.

Knockaert has deserved more goal contributions since his arrival and his failure to register a goal or assist hasn’t been through a lack of effort.

The former Brighton man has looked at home at the City Ground playing under Hughton and supporters will hope there is more to come.

Here is what fans were saying about Knockaert’s performance despite defeat at Barnsley.
