Nottingham Forest and Milwall played out one of the drab football results of the weekend in the Championship as their match ended in a 1-1 stalemate. The first half was a rather cagey affair as both teams created little. Matt Smith scored a towering header to put the visitors ahead in the first game for home manager Steve Cooper. The hosts were rather fortunate with the equalizer as Max Lowe’s cross sailed over Bart Bialowski in the Milwall net. Forest looked like the team was more likely to nick it but the draw was a fair result.

Managers Reaction

Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper: “We did get into good positions, we did get down the side of Millwall’s back-three. We could have done better with the final pass, we could have created more chances. But we will do that because we have the ability in the team and I want to get players on the pitch who can really hurt the opposition, particularly here.” he added. “We will try to win every game we play, that is the mentality we are going to have. But the quality will get better in time because we definitely have the ability.”

Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “It was a difficult game but I thought we might have won it. We saw them win at Huddersfield playing this formation but we were not sure how they would do things today. We knew the atmosphere here is always excellent and in the first 15 minutes, you have to stand up to it. On the whole, we did that, aside from that one chance for Grabban.
