Lewis Grabban scored in stoppage time to help Nottingham Forest produce one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. It was an entertaining game with the hosts dominating throughout large periods of the game. The second half was more even than the first with Grabban scoring from a yard out against his former club to snatch three points.
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “It’s a bitter pill to swallow, but that’s Championship football. The game becomes end-to-end, and you’ve got to take your chances. What you can’t do is make silly decisions. It’s just little moments we perhaps need to manage a bit better and whether that’s the individual player that’s doing it or other players around, it’s just saying ‘wait’. I appreciate we want to win the game but there has to be a relevant chance of winning at that moment – otherwise, you see what happens.”
Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper: “We knew coming into it this is one of the toughest places to come and play, and to get a result. I think we had over 20 shots in the second half and I’m glad one went in in the end. We didn’t start the game so well. It was becoming that game that we knew it might be, but we didn’t help ourselves if truth be told. On the half-hour, we started to settle, and half-time came at the wrong time when Yatesey [Ryan Yates] missed a really good chance.”
