Late Goal Keeps Reds In Drop Zone
Nottingham Forest remain 3rd from bottom in the Championship table, following the 1-0 away defeat at Brighton.
Although this was a game the Reds' dominated for long spells, they failed to capitalise on the chances created. They paid a heavy price for that failure, when Will Buckley fired in a 92nd minute goal for the home side, to give them all 3 points.
It was a defeat the lads didn't deserve and manager Steve Cotterill was disappointed to say the least in his post match interview. He told the official site. 'It is so cruel' he said, 'I am lost as to what to say to the players today, the lads are gutted. We were outstanding today, it is the best we've played since I've been here, we dominated the ball against a good, passing team.'
Even Brighton boss Gus Poyet admitted his side were fortunate. 'I feel for Forest. Everything worked for the team that is doing a bit better. They would have thought 'what have we to do to win?'.'
The defeat keeps Forest in the relegation zone, but both Ipswich and Bristol City above us, are on 20 points each as well.
