Nottingham Forest fans can’t agree on the Diogo Goncalves red card decision

Benfica loanee Diogo Goncalves was sent off on Wednesday as Nottingham Forest beat Stoke 3-2 to progress to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup, and many Forest fans took to Twitter after the game to debate whether the decision was a fair one.

Forest started the game brilliantly and Ben Osborn, who was playing at left-back on the night, gave the home side the lead after 19 minutes when the ball bounced off Stoke keeper Adam Federici and off the Forest man’s knee into the net.

Five minutes before half-time, Daryl Murphy doubled their lead with a convincing finish and again five minutes on the other side of the break, winger Joe Lolley made it 3-0.

With just over 10 minutes to go though, with the scores now at 3-1, Goncalves seemed to go over the top of the ball and catch Tom Edwards, for which he was shown a straight red card.

Despite conceding again though Aitor Karanka’s side held on for the win, but after the game fans couldn’t agree on whether they had been hard done by. Check out some of the best tweets below.
