Nottingham Forest drew 2-2 with Middlesbrough last night in the Sky Bet Championship as both sides fought to get an important three points in terms of their respective aims this season.
Of course, the pair have got different goals for the end of the year. Boro, the hosts, are battling to stay in the league whilst Forest are looking to get themselves out of the division and back into the top flight at long last.
On the balance of play last night, too, both sides probably deserved the point that they earned and both will hope in the long run it will prove an important one gained.
Sabri Lamouchi, meanwhile, offered this verdict after the game:
🗣 “I think we are happy with this point but just the point because the way we played, I am not totally satisfied. It was a bad game, a bad performance and I am a little bit upset because the expectation was bigger." #NFFC

Forest fans have reacted to these words from their gaffer, then, so let’s take a look at the best of what has been said after the spoils were shared on Teesside and Forest continue in their hunt for the top two:
The honesty from this man is something you don’t get from many managers, no excuses. He takes the blame he says it how it is

At least he is honest but seriously what is wrong with playing Carvalho? Especially when silva is out

This is why i love him. Says it how it is

Don’t keep starting Yates then matey and play those with more attacking ability instead, the likes of bostock and that Portuguese fella who wears no.10.

Sabri just because we had Hudderfield pants down with Lolley you don't owe them anymore favours

Not bold enough boss. No regrets please, we’re so close. Really need to start grabbing these kind of games by the scruff of the neck and attack instead of constantly countering. 70 mins for Carvalho to come on was too long. We’d have won if changes were made at halftime #nffc
