Nottingham Forest will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing draw at Reading, as they prepare for their home clash with Luton Town this weekend.
The Reds dominated for large parts during the encounter at the Madejski Stadium, creating a host of chances in the first-half but failing to find the back of the net.
It looked like Sabri Lamouchi’s side had scored a late, late winner, though, when Ben Watson converted from a corner in the 96th minute to send the travelling fans into raptures.
But less than a minute later, Reading found an equaliser in quite remarkable circumstances, with Tobias Figueiredo putting the ball into his own net from a low Jordan Obita cross.
That’s not the first time this season Forest have thrown away a lead late on – they did the same against Millwall in December, and then gave Middlesbrough to snatch a point at the death only four days later.
Can you get 14 out of 14 on this Forest quiz?
Lamouchi will be praying that complacency doesn’t continue to creep into their game, as strong heads are needed if the Reds are to win promotion and make a long-awaited return to the Premier League.
On the Nottingham Forest News page on Facebook, Forest fans have been debating how big of a problem this is becoming for the Reds…
Philip Tomlinson: May prove very costly Fulham and Brentford are in good form. Reading , boro and Cardiff can mount a challenge Forest have ridden their luck. Need a good two signings to spark a serious challenge
Nm Brown: Leeds are faltering. The wheels are falling off. And for once we are there or there abouts to capitalise, once we hit some form. We are doing great playing average football.
Richard Leonard: Too much can change at this point of the season. Leeds are great football team but can’t score. If they get a Grabban like striker they will win this league. Nobody wins the league in jan, still a lot of football to play
Paul Dachtler: It will be the difference between automatic promotion and play offs or even play offs and mid table….
Shane Millward: we will know that at the end of the season but been far too many late goals against us this season and you just know there will be more
Andrew Shaw: Could cost us going up!
Marc Lupino: Middlesbrough at home, millwall away and reading away that’s 6 points straight away, anymore?
