Nottingham Forest fans are loving Joe Lolley’s tackle vs Swansea

Championship Picks

Nottingham Forest continued a run of fine form by ending Swansea City’s unbeaten start to the Championship season at the weekend.

It is a sixth straight league game without defeat for Sabri Lamouchi’s men as substitute Alfa Semedo tapped home Lewis Grabban’s cross from the byline with just five minutes remaining at the Liberty Stadium.

The Reds boss made five changes for the game, which saw Jack Robinson and Joe Lolley surprisingly dropped to the bench as both players had started at least five of their seven games this season.

But the latter did play some part in the match as he came on in the 59th minute.

His work ethic and team-first mentality were displayed when he risked jumping in with what could have been a rather reckless tackle.

Several supporters at the City Ground reacted to this moment in the match.

One claimed it was ‘cracking defending’ while another praised his commitment and passion.

Lolley was one of Forest’s most influential players last season, recording the most assists in the side with 11 while also scoring the same number of goals, per WhoScored.

The 27-year-old is yet to fully hit the ground running this season having laid on just one assist in six league appearances.

A further fan said that ‘Psycho’ (a.k.a. Stuart Pearce) would have been proud of that tackle with one supporter believing the club were lucky even to have Lolley.

Here’s the best of the reaction:
