Forest boss Cooper frustrated after Wolves draw: Podence will face action

Wolves attacker Daniel Podence scored a late equaliser as they held Nottingham Forest to a 1-1 draw .

Podence fired home his sixth goal of the season at the City Ground after Brennan Johnson had put Forest ahead in the first half.

Both teams had their assistant head coach red-carded early in the second half, with Forest's Alan Tate and Wolves counterpart Pablo Sanz dismissed from the dugout after the visitors appealed for a penalty when Adama Traore went down in the box.

Tempers flared again in the closing stages when Johnson appeared to suggest Podence spat in his direction, but Chris Kavanagh took no action after a VAR check.

Forest boss Steve Cooper later said: "There's always the result and performance.

"I'm frustrated with the result because we should have scored two or three more goals and disappointed with the goal we conceded. Ricochets didn't land for us.

"We were comfortably the better team, superior in every way and created all the real chances. Performance-wise, I'm really pleased.

"If we continue to perform like that we'll have more successful days.

"Brennan is really thriving in his first season in the Premier League. We got into some really good positions and you have to.

"It's a missed opportunity. The dressing room is a bit down."

On Podence's alleged spit, he added: "I'm not going to comment on it publicly. I'm sure there will be next steps."
