Calderwood Mugged In Bristol

Once again, Forest have on loan keeper Lee Camp to thank for salvaging a point at Ashton Gate yesterday, following the 2-2 draw with Bristol City.

Whilst Forest fans left the ground feeling ecstatic with a point, Colin Calderwood left feeling he'd been mugged. Lee Camp's injury time penalty save rescued a point for the Reds', in almost exactly the same way it did at the Sheepdip three weeks ago.

Forest twice took the lead in the game, but on both occasions the home side were able to level. It looked as though Michael McIndoe would grab the points for the Robins, but once again Lee Camp came to the rescue with a great penalty save.

Calderwood told the Evening Post. 'It would have been a total injustice had City scored from the late penalty. We controlled most of the game and I don't consider even a draw a fair result.' That's almost fighting talk from CC and it's good to hear he feels pissed at the result.

Maybe the tide is turning for our underfire leader and maybe, just maybe the canny Scot can get us out of this mess. It's beginning to look like we could be turning the corner, with results starting to improve. We might still be languishing in the relegation zone, but there are reasons to be cheerful. Safety is within touching distance now, with only four points keeping us from the comfort zone. That points defecit could be narrowed to one, if we get a win at home to Norwich on Saturday and of course, if results elsewhere go in our favour.
