A two-goal victory would have taken Sabri Lamouchi’s side up to third in the Championship table but they fell to defeat in the East Midlands as a lapse in concentration led to Nathaniel Mendez-Laing finding space to curl a 20-yard shot into the bottom corner early in the game.

Cardiff had a huge opportunity to double their lead early in the second-half when Lolley cleared off the line from Gary Madine after more good work from Mendez-Laing.

Lamouchi’s men struggled to create any clear-cut chances of their own, as they remain fourth in the Championship.

Lolley was one of Forest’s most threatening players on the day, especially in the second-half. He managed to get himself in a dangerous position on numerous occasions, but his final ball into the box let him down.

Some Forest fans rallied round to praise Lolley for his efforts on the day – not to mention the season so far – and made it clear that it was just a bad day:

Forest will look to put things right at the New Den on Friday when they face Millwall.
