Nottingham Forest Fans Fury Over Late Draw With Derby County
Chris Martin Levels Scores at the Death
Both sides came into the tie with a 100 per cent record since football’s restart, and the two teams’ up-turn in form was evident with chances on offer for both.
Derby County improved during the second half, especially with the introduction of Martyn Waghorn.
But the drama came in stoppage time when Waghorn was shown a straight red card for a heavy challenge on Ryan Yates.
And, just moments later, the Rams levelled.
A cheap freekick conceded by Joe Worrall allowed Wayne Rooney to deliver the ball into the box; Samba failed to deal with the delivery properly and Martin was on-hand to bundle the ball across the line in the seventh minute of added time.
What the Fans Have to Say
Bookmakers had a draw between the two sides the most likely outcome, but that does not make up for the heartache felt by Forest fans.
The Reds had led for the majority of the game and should have converted more of their chances in the final third of the pitch.
Here’s what Forest fans had to say at full-time
It's disappointing, but 8 points from the 12 we had is still brilliant. Stopped the sheep and still secure for playoffs. Try look on the brightside lads#NFFC

Today shouldn't take away from Worrall the fantastic season he's had. Nobody can call into doubt the fantastic progress he's made this season but there's a lesson to be learned today I'm afraid #NFFC
