England cricket legend Stuart Broad has been left stunned by one key decision that went against Nottingham Forest against Wolves.

Forest drew the game 1-1 and it’s now seven games without a victory for the Reds, with their survival status still firmly in the balance.

Broad is gearing up for the Ashes that take place in England this summer but on Saturday he Tweeted about the key Forest incident.

The flashpoint came just as the game edged towards stoppage time. A coming together saw a bit of an exchange between Brennan Johnson and Wolves star Daniel Podence.

Footage appears to show Podence spitting at Johnson. VAR was unable to truly determine, however, exactly what had happened between the two.

It remains to be seen whether the Wolves man will be sanctioned. Some images since the game have suggested that Podence can be seen spitting towards Johnson.

Broad is a classy performer on and off the field. He’s the second-highest wicket-taker in England’s history when it comes to test matches and he will be sharp ahead of the summer.

The 36-year-old is also a huge fan of the Reds. On Saturday he was stunned by what he’d seen on the field and chose to vent his frustrations on Twitter.

The cricketer wasn’t happy at all. He couldn’t understand why Podence wasn’t shown a red card on the field after the VAR check.

Ultimately, some sympathy must go to the officials here. It was hard to determine whether or not Podence actually spat, although it has since been implied that he did.

After Saturday’s game, Broad posted on Twitter: “Went to VAR for spitting. Seems clear and obvious to me. How is that not a red card?”

Forest can’t dwell on what happens to Podence anymore. Hopefully, he will be sanctioned, however, and Wolves lose a top player for a game or two of the run-in.
