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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
