Nottingham Forest were held to a 0-0 draw by Bristol City in their penultimate Championship fixture yesterday, but it really should have been all three points for the hosts following a dominant display.
On loan attacker Lee Tomlin had the perfect opportunity to seal a win for Forest when they were awarded a penalty in the second half but the Reds’ star man saw his tame spot kick saved by Frank Fielding.
Tomlin has been a revelation for the Reds since arriving on deadline day during the January transfer window and Forest fans are extremely hopeful that boss Aitor Karanka will try and lure the 29-year-old back to the City Ground on a permanent basis in the summer.
Tomlin himself was ‘fuming’ with himself following his inability to hit the net from 12-yards and took the time out to vent his frustration on Twitter following the game.
