Lewis Grabban stepped up to score a penalty in the eighth minute of added time last night as Nottingham Forest drew with Birmingham City.

After the game, supporters reacted on Twitter, giving praise to the Forest talisman for the composure he showed so late on.

Lee Bowyer’s men took the lead in the in the 49th minute when Marc Roberts headed home at the far post following a corner.
