Nottingham Forest fans on Twitter have been reacting to the news that Tendayi Darikwa will miss a large portion of the season due to a knee injury.

Darikwa will be a huge miss for the East Midlands club as he is their only senior right-back after Saidy Janko moved to Young Boys after his loan spell last season.

The Zimbabwean made 28 appearances for the Reds last term as he rotated with both Janko and Sam Byram.

He was in line to be a key player for Sabri Lamouchi’s side in the 2019/20 season as the new manager stated that he is the number one choice in his position.

Amongst all the get well soon messages some fans are hoping that during his time on the sidelines Darikwa can heal and come back even stronger.

Other supporters expressed their disappointment at this news as they feel that Forest will be much weaker without their first-choice full-back.

Of course, some Twitter users were speculating about who could replace Darikwa at right-back. Matty Cash’s name was mentioned as he had played in that position during pre-season, but 18-year-old Jayden Richardson was also named as a potential replacement.
