Jack Robinson felt Nottingham Forest deserved to get all three points from their match against Leeds United for their defensive resolve alone.

The Reds went ahead thanks to the full back's first goal for the club but a controversial late equaliser saw the game end in a stalemate.

Speaking after the game, he said: "We should have taken the three points and we haven't and that is the most disappointing thing about it.

"It was a tough game, Leeds played very well and we were on the back foot for most of the 90 minutes, but it was one of those Championship games where you have got to graft it out and we were doing that until the decision went against us.

"I didn't have a clear view of it at the time but I have seen it back and it is handball. It is one of those where it has gone against us this time but next time it might go for us so it is just one of those decisions.

"It is frustrating, especially when it comes to a decision like that when you have defended well for 80 minutes and then they get a goal like that.

"It is just so disappointing as if we would have got three points here it would have boosted the confidence of the whole team, especially at a place like Elland Road. It is a tough place to come and many teams will come here and won't win and it was a big opportunity for us."

Robinson was delighted to get off the mark for The Reds and he felt that the early goal helped set them up for the rest of the match.

He said: "It was good to score but I am disappointed now more than anything. I am not that bothered that I scored as I wanted the win more than anything.

"Scoring the goal early settled us down a bit. I thought we played well in the first half but second half they upped their game and we sat back a little bit. We were defending for most of the half and it was a tough second half."
