Nottingham Forest fans all say the same thing as costly miss rued in Reading draw

By Luke Pawley

Nottingham Forest fans are mostly happy with a point from Saturday's game against Reading.

A missed chance from Lewis Grabban could have proven costly for Forest, although the consensus is that it was fair for both sides to share the spoils.

Forest started well, with a fourth-minute strike from Philip Zinckernagel getting the game off to a strong opening, only for a second-half equaliser from Scott Dann to cancel it out.

It leaves Steve Cooper 's men 13th in the Championship table, just five points outside the play-off places.

Here is how some supporters reacted on Twitter :

@kierenstraw : I’m happy with a point, Grabban may cost us that game but a point away from home is still very good against a good reading side! We can’t win every game so no abuse today

@jwkav10 : Probably fair. We HAVE to start getting more ruthless however.... Thought we lost our balance when Lowe went off. Good point if we can beat a very good hatters side on Tuesday

@95Redss : Two points lost rather than one gained. An unusually flat performance from #NFFC today.

@Mister_Forest : Decent point that, sounded like a decent game. Just a shame Grabban couldn’t be more clinical. Oh well on to the next one

@mikewood77 : January is going to be massive. Expect the two wingbacks to be recalled and we need some more fire power without question. Costly miss that sitter from Grabban

@FreebsTheTree : If you don't play well away from home and take a point, that's not the worst thing. Could have won that though. Grrrrr. On to Luton

@BowlesSamuel : We weren’t very good but I’ll take the point. Could of easily won it with better decision making. Please don’t be a long injury for Lowe
