Nottingham Forest were beaten 2-1 by Middlesbrough at the City Ground as their seven-match unbeaten run evaporated.

The Reds were poor throughout the contest and were deservedly beaten by the promotion chasers.

Britt Assombalonga opened the scoring with George Saville adding a second just after half-time.

Loic Mbe Soh pulled a goal back in stoppage time but the game was gone and Forest came away with nothing.

The performance of the goalscoring Frenchman was a real positive though and supporters reacted on Twitter afterwards.

Mbe Soh arrived from PSG in the summer but has been forced to wait patiently for a chance to shine at the City Ground.

The 19-year-old has made just five appearances for the Reds and has largely been a peripheral figure.

 

Mbe Soh came on for Ryan Yates in this contest, with the academy graduate hobbling off with an injury.

He didn’t disappoint and highlighted his versatility.

Plenty of fans were quick to call for the player to start at Swansea in the FA Cup on Saturday.

With Chris Hughton expected to make plenty of changes, it looks like a real opportunity for the Frenchman.

Here is what supporters were saying about the talented youngster after Wednesday’s defeat.
