Nottingham Forest fans have turned to social media to voice their thoughts on a late 1-0 victory at Blackburn Rovers.
Nottingham Forest Fans React to Victory at Blackburn Rovers
‘Three-Month Raincloud Lifted’
The winger, who had impressed throughout the match, cleverly beat his marker on 89 minutes and watched as his left-footed effort deflected off a defender and beyond the wrong-footed Thomas Kaminski.
There was little to separate the two sides for 89 minutes of the fixture at Ewood Park, before Lolley scored to settle the tie.
Ameobi came close again with a stabbed effort towards goal which hit the upright. But it was Lolley’s deflected error less than a minute from the end that wrapped up the game.
The result provides Forest with their first set of points of the season – ending a run of four back-to-back defeats in the Championship – and Forest fans are understandably pleased to end such a run.
This result means the world to Forest fans Matt. We’ve had a 3 month raincloud lifted!

Honestly think a scrappy, ugly 1-0 win with a deflected, lucky goal is better for squad cohesion and the future than any other result could have been. Need to follow it up with a win coupled with a good performance on Tuesday to cement the good feeling.

Excellent result. Slightly surprised to not see Mighten in the starting eleven & more surprised to see Figueiredo recalled.
I thought Armstrong & Dolan were going to cause us a lot of problems but Blackburn were underwhelming.
Some momentum heading in to a busy period #NFFC

Granted today wasn’t a great performance but Chris Hughton’s brought me more joy and excitement in the last week than Lamouchi has for the last 6 months, I’m falling in love with football again. In Hughton We Trust #NFFC

Big week and potentially season defining week for #nffc
Bit dramatic? Don't think so, two wins gets us up and roaring, two poor results see's us looking up for the season

How can a change of manager give such a fast reversal of fortune? A couple of weeks ago what we did to Blackburn has happened to us so often in recent games, with no sign of it being the other way around.
It’s a funny old game.#nffc

How many of us screamed “don’t shoot!!” at out laptops when Lolley was winding up to score the winner? #NFFC

One thing I loved today, Harry Arter when that goal went in. He made sure every player enjoyed that moment as much as he did, he plays Tuesday and he captains. #nffc
