Nottingham Forest drew 1-1 with Wolves at the City Ground yesterday and Felipe was absolutely outstanding for the Reds.

The point is probably a better one for Wolves than it is for the Reds as they stay in from of Forest for now.

Brennan Johnson opened the scoring for Forest but with seven minutes remaining Daniel Podence equalised.

The result moves Forest into 14th place in the Premier League but they remain two points clear of the relegation zone.

In Felipe, Forest have a player who boasts serious quality and he was in fine form once again yesterday.

The Reds added the 33-year-old to their ranks in the January transfer window, with the player signing an 18-month contract.

If Forest are going to pull clear of the relegation zone this season, the form of Felipe is likely to prove pivotal.

Yesterday, he used all of his experience to help Forest as they tried desperately to claim a big three points.

Felipe is perhaps old-fashioned in his defensive style but with Moussa Niakhate providing some elegance next to him, the pair look like a useful partnership.

The defender has now made seven appearances for the Reds. He’s only been part of a winning side once and he will want to change that.

Felipe outstanding as Forest drew with Wolves

Who Scored showcased some statistics that highlight just how good Felipe was for the Reds yesterday.

He won seven aerial challenges during the contest and also made five clearances to aid the Forest cause.

Felipe also made one block and completed one interception during his 90 minutes on the pitch.

It’s also clear where the man signed from Atletico Madrid can improve and it’s with his use of the ball.

Against Wolves, he completed just 58% of his 34 passes and clearly, he could be a little better in possession.

His defending is head and shoulders above anything else Forest have, however, and long may that continue.
