Morgan Gibbs-White could be in hot water after slamming referee Andre Marriner after Nottingham Forest drew 2-2 with Brentford.

The Reds were winning through the 22-year-old’s first goal of the campaign.

Shortly before half-time though Marriner intervened, deciding to award a penalty for a foul by Dean Henderson on Yoane Wissa.

Bryan Mbuemo scored from the spot, with Wissa putting the Bees 2-1 up with 15 minutes remaining.

Forest did restore parity deep into stoppage time when Mathias Jorgensen put through his own net.

Ryan Yates appeared to be offside for that goal but with Lee Mason on VAR, it’s no surprise that both teams felt aggrieved.

With Forest being denied two, maybe three penalties during the clash, Gibbs-White went on the attack after the game.

He told The Telegraph: “I think we deserved three points. We got cheated out of three points.

“We got cheated out of the game.

“I looked at the penalty back and don’t have a clue what the referee has seen. We came in at half-time angry but we had to use that emotion to get back into the game.”

It seems pretty clear that the Forest player will now be facing a charge from the FA.

As always, it’s likely that the Reds player will take a fine and possibly a suspension for some pretty woeful officiating.

Gibbs-White was clearly fouled in the second half but even with VAR, the officials decided not to use the monitor.

There was also a push on Ryan Yates that got overlooked and Forest might have also had a penalty when Emmanuel Dennis was felled in the box.

The £25 million man was incensed and he had no desire to hold back after the game.

It’s a complete joke that Gibbs-White will now take the punishment, whilst Marriner and Mason will likely have another game this weekend.
