Elijah Adebayo missed a penalty as Nottingham Forest held Luton Town in one of the goalless football results of the weekend in the Championship. Jack Colback was sent off after he brought down Tom Lockyer in the box for his second yellow of the game. It was the first time that Colback has been sent off since 2010. Despite having the numerical advantage, Luton could not find a goal and was forced to settle for a draw.
Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper: “Brice had big moments and his performance was like a striker scoring the winning goal. He made a massive contribution to us getting a result that we didn’t want at the start of the game, but one that was forced upon us. The penalty save was brilliant but the one at the end looked unbelievable and he got a round of applause in the dressing room afterward. The life of a goalkeeper has ups and downs and this game will have been a real up for him and he should be proud of himself.”
Luton’s Nathan Jones: “We are a good side and we’ve shown that here,” he declared. “Before the sending-off we were comfortable, our shape was good and we were good defensively. We just needed to show a bit of quality but, being realistic, we haven’t got the budget for a [Aleksandar] Mitrovic, [Dominic] Solanke or a Harry Wilson. The stats show that we’re creating enough chances and keeping the ball well enough, but I’m sick of looking at the numbers.”
