Conceding early clearly changed the game. Was a decent goal from a corner, but it gave Forest something to defend & a bit of heart. Our initial response was good; we were positive & created a few half chances. Once Forest had weathered the storm, they chose to sit back & looked dangerous on the break; was happy to go in at 0-1. Fair play to MM for making changes early & at h/t; the ball wasn't sticking enough up front. We started the 2nd half very positively & if we'd scored, might have gone on to won the game. Nouble is far more effective wide & had another good game. After we didn't core with our early pressure, thought it was going to be one of those games, but we deserved the equaliser. Murphy should have played someone in for a winner shortly afterwards, but Forest could have scored from a corner as well so 1-1 was about right. Think we need to start with a more positive set-up i.e. not Skuse & Hyam (I prefer Luke) if we are to win enough games.
We all know what he can do. If we want to learn anything useful about Luke Shaw, start him, rather than give him 20 minutes from the bench when the game has become disjointed after 10 or so substitutions.
