Nottingham Forest face Watford tonight in the Championship and club legend Andy Reid has been reminiscing about a previous game against the Hornets.

Back in 2014 the Reds trailed 2-0 to Watford but roared back to win 4-2, with Reid producing a superb assist for Darius Henderson to equalise.

Forest finished 11th during the 2013/14 campaign, enjoying a relatively decent campaign.

Reid was part of everything good about Forest back then, captaining the side in the absence of Chris Cohen.

He fired 10 goals that season as the Reds flirted with the play-offs in Billy Davies’ second spell in charge at the City Ground.

Reid played nearly 300 times for Forest during two spells at the club.

 

To fans of a certain age he is regarded as the best person to play for the football club – with his technical ability a joy to behold.

Following the club’s media choosing to showcase the highlights of the win over Watford in 2013/14, supporters have been raving over Reid.

He tweeted that it was his favourite assist and that led to Reds fans raving about the left-footed wizard.

Here is a selection of Tweets from the Forest faithful on Reid’s brilliance from nearly seven years ago.
