"We dominated the game without creating many things. But we scored in the right moment and I thought we would be able to survive for a few minutes.

"They scored and I don't know if Grabban was trying to control the ball or not, but we can do better in that situation.

"At the end, we are disappointed because we wanted three points and we feel as though we have lost two."

Forest had two golden chances to score earlier in the game, former Blade Lyle Taylor poking wide from a corner before Joe Worrall headed wide on the stroke of half-time, and the home side felt they should have had a penalty when Brennan Johnson went down under Chris Basham’s challenge – but was instead booked for diving.
