Three points dropped

15 August 2017

Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton was left rueing his side's poor night in front of goal as they fell to a 2-1 defeat against Barnsley.

The Reds boss said it was the best performance from his side so far this season but their inability to convert chances meant it was a frustrating night in Yorkshire.

He said: "We have lost three points and the biggest frustration is that it was by far the best performance of the season.

"We moved the ball quickly, we split them open and we looked dangerous when we attacked. We had the early shape problems and changed to four at the back and we contained them in the second half.

"Jordan has barely had a save to make and yet we are walking away without any points. It is frustrating because there were many positives aspects to our play but the fact is it is a 2-1 loss.

"The biggest frustration as a group is the we didn't get our rewards. We could have scored many goals.

"You can't just write this off; we have to look at what we can do better. We can have 95 per cent possession but goals change games and we didn't get the goals tonight.

"We knew they would scrap and fight and it is a tough place to come. All respect but Barnsley but we have to look at it as three points dropped."
