Lewis McGugan netted from the spot nine minutes from time to secure a 1-1 draw over the Tangerines who had Isaiah Osbourne sent-off in the 58th minute.

By that stage the home side were already trailing to Ludovic Sylvestre's 27th-minute strike and although Forest dominated the closing half-an-hour, they were unable to secure three points.

The midlanders remain fifth in the Championship table and Davies said: "It was a frustrating afternoon for us because of the type of game plan our opponents had.

"But it is credit to our players that teams are coming here and sitting so deep - they are aware of the attacking threat we have.

"We had seven corners to their one, had 18 shots against their four and had over 80 per-cent possession but we needed to be a bit more patient and increase our quality in the final third. We were pedestrian in the first half.

"But we are sitting in the top five, are unbeaten in 10 games and with five games to go are sitting in a very good position.

"We know what we have to do in the remaining games but I am delighted to be where we are, considering the situation we were in when I took over."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
