Nottingham Forest suffered their first league defeat of the season on Saturday, after losing 2-1 to Leeds United at Elland Road. It was a disappointing end to a good start to the season for the Reds’ and brought to an end a run of 6 games without defeat.

Talking to the official site, O’Driscoll said. “We came here with an unbeaten run and we`re disappointed that we’ve lost it and disappointed with the manner in which we’ve lost it. We threatened to go down without a whimper in the first half. I`ll take the second half but not the first 45 minutes.’

Forest barely got going in the first 45 minutes, despite having a goal disallowed for an apparent infringement on the keeper and a decent penalty shout turned down. Although the second half was a massive improvement from the Reds’, Dexter Blackstock’s second goal of the week, was all the lads were going to get.

O’Driscoll refused to be drawn on what was a shocking refereeing performance from Andy D’Urso. All he would say on the former Prem refs display was. “I don`t get frustrated with referees, but I said to the fourth official during the game that I no longer had a clue what a foul is.”
