Nottingham Forest failed to cement their place in the top six of the Championship as Fulham secured a 1-0 win at the City Ground.

The Reds were way off the pace and once again lost points thanks to a goal deep into stoppage time.

Harry Arter’s goal came in the fourth minute of time added on at the end of the first half and sent the Cottagers five points clear of Forest.

 

The Reds weren’t at their best and after the game on Twitter, supporters were quick to have their say.

Unsurprisingly there were plenty of people quick to write the game off as a freak result; believing a play-off place is still firmly within Forest’s grasp.

One topic of conversation that was hot on lots of lips was the exclusion of Joao Carvalho, who once again failed to get on the pitch.

Carvalho showed flashes of promises last season and looked to be settling into first-team football in England.

His career has somewhat stalled this season, however, starting just nine league games under Lamouchi.

After another game without the 23-year-old magician, Nottingham Forest fans took to Twitter to urge the Reds boss to bring Carvalho in from the cold.
