Nottingham Forest’s bid for a play-off finish took a major blow at the weekend, after being held to a 1-1 draw against bottom side Ipswich Town at the weekend.
The Reds were looking to kick on from where they left off after a magnificent 3-0 home win against Hull City last week – a victory that saw them close the gap on the top six to just two points.
Most would have thought that a win at Portman Road was a given, with Paul Lambert’s men sitting rock bottom of the Sky Bet Championship table with relegation to League One looking to be a real possibility.
But Collin Quaner opened the scoring for the Tractor Boys after just five minutes, before Forest equalised on the half hour mark – Molla Wague will feel that he should have been given the goal, but instead it was a credited as a Jon Nolan own-goal.
Wague was given his first start in the Garabaldi colours, and put in a solid performance next to Yohan Benalouane in the absence of Alex Milosevic – here, we take a look at Forest fans’ reactions to the defender’s display at the weekend…
Apart from the goal I didn't think he had a bad game. #nffc

Not really sure why wague played over Milošević as wague was awful today and at fault for the goal #nffc

#Nffc I was there today. A local Forest Red who sat in the home end. Forest were poor today. Unsettled by Wague’s presence, Pantimillion’s hopelessness, no width and a stodgy midfield. We looked about the same as Ipswich. Just boot and rush.
