A draw at The City Ground is something that I am sure Barnsley would have been more than happy with before the championship kick-off, and this is what they got this afternoon.

Forest fans however would have been expecting much more I am sure…

Steve McClaren’s first competitive game in charge turned into something of a ‘damp squib’, by all accounts, with neither side able to make the breakthrough.

0-0 is how it started and 0-0 is how it ended!
