Fans all say the same thing as Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa play out bore draw to remain in relegation trouble


MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL fans were all saying the same thing after watching Nottingham Forest’s draw with Aston Villa.

Emmanuel Dennis gave the hosts the dream start after quarter of an hour as he headed home Morgan Gibbs-White’s free-kick.

But a rocket from Ashley Young just seven minutes later from 25 yards levelled the scores.

Despite the exciting start, the match soon dipped and eventually ended with Forest being held by Villa to a 1-1 draw.

Instead, they finished a bad-tempered night in 16th – well short of his ambitions and had vet defender Ashley Young to thank for a face-saving point after he equalised Emmanuel Dennis’s early opener.

Only Wolves,  with a pitiful three goals this season, had scored fewer than this pair in the Premier League this season.

In fact, Erling Haaland’s 15 goals in nine games for Manchester City was one more than the 14 Forest and Villa had managed in twice as many games between them.

And those that tuned into Sky Sports to watch the action were soon taking to Twitter afterwards to slam the quality that they had seen.

One viewer wrote: “Nobody can convince me that Forest Villa game wasn’t a Championship play off semi-final, first leg. Just awful football teams.”

Another tweeted: “That Forest Villa game was Championship standard at the absolute most!”

A fellow fan commented: “Villa vs Forest was a championship game.”

And another said: “Truly awful standard Forest v Aston Villa poor Championship standard tbf.”

However, a fellow fan claimed: “Villa and Forest are so bad, it’s disrespectful to even call them Championship level.”

The result ended a run of five consecutive defeats for Steve Cooper’s side.

Forest have now moved up to 19th in the Premier League table, a point above Leicester.

They sit four behind Steven Gerrard’s Villa who remain 16th.
