Fulltime: Nottingham Forest 4 – 2 Leeds United
Well, that game was a cause for concern. Why we’re letting goals in so early on is beyond me, we really need to stop conceding goals so early on, it’s not a habit us fans want to get used to!
After Colbeck scoring the first goal in 4 minutes, it felt like this is a repeat performance from our last 2 games with late winners. We leveled it up with Jansson and then took the lead with Alioski even with 10 men after Kalvin made a reckless challenge.
The 10 men fiasco I think got to much to the team and Forest found to many pockets and spaces to exploit in and around the Leeds defence.
If Kalvin hadn’t had got himself sent off, I think we would have clinched a win.
But questions will be raised as we always seem to bottle it this time of the season and have major bad spells. Let’s hope history doesn’t repeat itself again…
The good news is, we’re still top. But had we won this game, it would have increased the gap and we could have built on that.
Let’s hope when we face Derby on the 11th, Bielsa gets his players back on the saddle as I think it’s time our beloved club saw the Premier League once again.
