Wolves star Daniel Podence has suggested that Nottingham Forest standout Morgan Gibbs-White wound him up yesterday.

The Portuguese player scored the equalising goal after Brennan Johnson had scored in the first half of the contest.

Forest are in desperate need of a victory and yesterday’s result makes it seven games without a win.

Gibbs-White was a man bang in form during the clash yesterday as he squared off against the club where he rose through the ranks.

Forest signed the 23-year-old during the summer for a club-record transfer fee that could rise to £40 million.

He’s been a wonderful player to watch this season, although he’s striving for more goals and assists.

Gibbs-White clearly enjoyed himself yesterday and Podence has suggested that he wound him up.

He told the club’s official website: “I really don’t know what it is. I played against them last season and this year the refs have been brutal in terms of decisions, they’re very complicated against us.

“We are fighting against good players and of course Morgan (Gibbs-White) and he likes to provoke our fans and that’s what we do on the pitch. It’s very difficult to explain this rivalry.”

This doesn’t come as a major surprise. Wolves players are still mocking Gibbs-White for his fingers-in-ears celebration back in January.

The Forest youngster was outstanding during the 1-1 draw yesterday. He was really up for the game and produced several good-quality moments.

Podence felt the need to mention Gibbs-White in his post-match. Perhaps the Forest man is still living rent-free in the forward’s head.

The result yesterday was pretty unjust. Forest were far the better team and on another day they’d have buried Wolves by being more clinical.

Gibbs-White was a man in fine form and Forest will need him to keep producing the goods if they’re to stay up this season.
