In a goalless draw, the hosts dominated proceedings, hitting the woodwork four times - twice through Billy Sharp and once each through Andy Reid and Henri Lansbury.

Forest are two points out of a play-off spot with just a brace of games remaining and should have beaten a Barnsley side still inside the relegation zone.

Davies said: "I couldn't ask more from the players. You have all seen the post hit, the bar hit, all the chances we created, all the crosses and there's no doubt we deserved three points. Lady Luck was against us.

"At the moment the breaks are just not going for us but I said to the players after the game that if they take today's form into the last two games they will win them both.

"We are disappointed to have only got one but we will go into our last two games trying to win them both and that will take us to 70 points.

"I said before today that we needed two wins and a draw and if we can achieve it that might be just enough to get us in."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
