Glenn Murray continued his fine form with two more goals for the Eagles but an injury-time strike from Billy Sharp earned Forest a 2-2 draw with Alex McLeish in charge for the first time.

"I thought for 75% of the game we were a very good side and the lads are gutted because, like me, they feel we could have won the game," Holloway said.

"The lads are getting used to the way I want them to play and if we keep playing like we did for long periods of this game we will do very well.

"Today we got ourselves into a situation to win the match and we've ended up with one point instead of three - and that's frustrating.

"I was very proud of them, their work ethic was excellent and they played some exceptional football - as did Forest - in atrocious conditions.

"But at times, particularly at the end of the first half, we dropped deep and it cost us the first equaliser. Having said that I have to give credit to the strike from Andy Reid. He's got himself fit and he's a good player."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
