Forest boss Billy Davies saw his side come from behind twice yesterday in the 2-2 draw with fellow Playoff candidates Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday. Both Davies and Brighton manager Gus Poyet believe their team did enough to take all three points.

Davies told the BBC. ‘If we had gone in one or two goals up it wouldn’t have flattered us but even though we were frustrated we kept driving on to the end. This team has many qualities but there is a great spirit in there and they were determined to get a result out of it. Even when we had got it to 2-2 we were still trying to win the game.’

Poyet was equally praising of his side, although he was surprised at Lansbury’s equaliser. ‘To begin with I thought the [Lansbury] shot must have taken a deflection but when I’ve seen it again I nearly killed myself!’
