West Bromwich Albion 2 - Nottingham Forest 2
Pretty woeful and that bench looked so bare. I know we had big injuries but I’d have found a way to get Montero into the squad tonight.
We started well enough but gave away another diabolical goal - overplayed by Dawson but then still with enough cover.
After that we were rubbish - Murphy was incredibly bad; no strength, no intelligence, hoping for long balls rather than looking for the ball. Only Harper had a go in our midfield and at least JRod/Gayle ran hard but their decision making was poor.
We had a 10 minute spell before half time when we moved the ball quickly and looked a threat and simply by upping the tempo we equalised after the break with a sloppy goal that followed a wonderful Harper volley off the bar from 20 yards that deserved more.
At that point it looked like we might go on to win it but we conceded another park goal from a long throw - could SJ have come to collect or punch it and where was our defence.
I felt after that we ran out of ideas, the introduction of Hoolahan didn’t really help and we got massively lucky with a dodgy penalty.
Forest looked more dangerous on the break and SJ did make one brilliant save before our equaliser to keep us in the game.
Automatic promotion is fading away. Our home form is atrocious and we seem to be tactically inept - bereft of a plan B and getting stuck in a predictable rut as we were earlier in the season with 3 at the back.
I can’t be the only person dreading Saturday.
