Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough played out an entertaining 2-2 draw last night at the Riverside Stadium in the Sky Bet Championship.
The Reds have been impressive this season and remain firm contenders for promotion but would have felt as though they could have gone on to win the game when 1-0 up.
However, a double salvo from Middlesbrough saw them take the lead and it looked like that is how it was going to end until Lewis Grabban earned the away side a point.
In the end, a draw was probably a fair result and Redes fan will hope it proves to be an important one when all is said and done at the end of the season.
From the game, too, fans were impressed with Joao Carvalho when he came on and, that said, there has been plenty of praise for him on Twitter, as well as calls for him to start against Millwall on Friday.
Let’s take a look at what has been said:
CARVALHO HAS TO START ON FRIDAY #NFFC

Since Carvalho’s been on we’ve looked far more attacking. Must be a coincidence #nffc

Bostock and Carvalho turned what looked like a guaranteed loss into a potentially massive point come end of the season. #NFFC

Can we please try playing Carvalho from the start on Friday please? #NFFC

Hate jumping on the Diakhaby hate band wagon but he really has made little to no impact since he signed. Surely Carvalho and Mighten are above him in the pecking order now 🔴⚪ #nffc

Bostock looks a player thought it earlier in season, good technically.
Played well when he come on.
But carvalho changed the game, should of been on 15 mins earlier, and kept ameobi on, has to start Friday #nffc
