Nottingham Forest defender Joe Worrall has explained what he thought was the big turning point in yesterday’s win.

The Reds defeated Crystal Palace 1-0 on Trentside to climb off the bottom of the Premier League.

Forest won courtesy of Morgan Gibbs-White who scored his second goal of the campaign.

The Reds could have won by a finer margin having wasted many chances during the contest.

Worrall played in the league for the first time in months and he did well as he captained the team.

The Hucknall-born defender has explained what he thought was the turning point during the contest.

He told BBC Radio Nottingham: “I’m Just buzzing Zaha missed the penalty.”

In fairness, Worrall has a point. Had the Ivorian scored just before half-time, the Reds would have lost.

It was a decent performance from the Reds though and Worrall will be ecstatic.

The Reds captain bleeds Forest and naturally, he will have been delighted with the win yesterday.

Worrall is the epitome of a Forest player who wears his heart on his sleeve every time he plays for the club.

He takes a great deal of pride in his performances and now he has a chance to stamp his authority on the team.

Worrall explained big talking point

Zaha is going to be one of the big free transfers next summer.

Yesterday, he missed a penalty and Forest might be eternally grateful for the player fluffing his lines.

Worrall played well and Zaha now has a long time to sit on his miss that ultimately gave Forest the catalyst for a win.

The 25-year-old has now silenced his critics. He was fantastic yesterday and now he will fancy keeping his place in the team.
