Some Derby County supporters have taken to Twitter to react to comments made by Nottingham Forest’s Joe Worrall following the 1-1 draw at Pride Park.

Forest looked set to win the bragging rights after James Garner opened the scoring.

But despite controlling the second half, Forest were punished for not finding a second goal as Derby’s Colin Kazim-Richards thundered in a stunning late equaliser.

The game finished 1-1, just as it did earlier in the season at the City Ground.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Worrall claimed Forest can’t be too happy as they were only playing Derby, not Barcelona, while adding his side created many chances.

Worrall’s comments prompted a reaction from some Derby fans on Twitter.

 

Forest may feel aggrieved to have only drawn. However, the Reds were second best in the opening period and their soft goal came very much against the run of play.

Chris Hughton’s side dominated possession in the second period, but they rarely tested Kelle Roos who came on in place of the injured David Marshall late in the first half.

Derby, meanwhile, can argue they created the better chances. Jason Knight missed what appeared to be a very presentable chance early on, firing over from just six yards.

And substitute Lee Gregory almost won it for the Rams as he linked up with Patrick Roberts well before sending a volley from around the penalty spot wide of Brice Samba’s post.

A draw sees both teams move a point further away from the threat of relegation.

Worrall was a standout for Forest as he performed well, but that’s twice now where his side have conceded late goals at Pride Park and missed out on the bragging rights.
