Jack Colback scored late on as QPR and Nottingham Forest shared one of the close football results of the weekend in the Championship. It was a cagey encounter from the get-go before Albert Adomah found Lyndon Dykes who finished nicely in first-half stoppage time. Forest who have turned their fortunes around since the appointment of Steve Cooper scored late on to extend their unbeaten streak. Forest moved into 16th place with the point while QPR moved into the playoff places.
QPR’s Mark Warburton: “It was a nasty deflection, nothing we could really do. I thought we showed lots of character and had a very good second-half performance, where we created lots of good chances on the left and right flank and that’s a very painful goal to go in late.” he added. “I think you saw a lot of our fluidity – move the ball forward – our shape was good, we denied them opportunities and we looked very, very dangerous. I’m pleased with the players in terms of the response, but they are hurting in there now.”
Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper: “I’m happy that we didn’t lose because that would have been a really difficult one to take with the way that we played and with a few interesting decisions that I have seen back and I’m not going to talk any more about. I’m just glad that the boys got something out of it because it was the least that we deserved on the night.”
