I was pretty pleased with the performance yesterday afternoon and think that there’s plenty of positives to take from the result.
Of course, it could have been better, especially when they went down to ten men for the final few minutes but we`re still a gelling side and so it was nice to remain unbeaten if nothing else as well putting another dent in their promotion hopes.
With that said, too, I think it is pretty safe to assume that they got rattled before, during and after the game and, as per, collapsed under the pressure with Richard Keogh making some pretty brave claims.
Indeed, he`s accused our lads of diving when, ironically, it was one of his team-mates that ended up in the book for such an offence.
I`m not the only one taken aback by this either it seems, and so let`s take a look at what has been said on Twitter.

Every time we went and assaulted them they went down! I also tried several times to grab a shirt of the Forest lads backs but didn`t get one. Always wanted a shirt with two stars on it!
