Nottingham Forest faced down relegation rivals Bournemouth last weekend in a vital game for both sides, ending in standstill at the Vitality Stadium due to a last minute equaliser from Sam Surridge.

Forest set up without a few key men on Saturday, being without goalkeeper Dean Henderson and midfielder Jesse Lingard.

Chris Wood made a sudden debut after only being signed the day before, as Forest struggle for goals.

GK: Wayne Hennessey – 6/10

An above average performance from the Welsh man who had big boots to fill in Dean Henderson. Not much he could do about the goal and did well in keeping Kieffer Moore out.

RB: Serge Aurier – 6/10

Aurier started the game well, providing a lot of support down the right-hand side, something Forest fans will be used to seeing. After the goal was scored however, he never recovered and struggled with the pace of the game.

LB: Renan Lodi – 7/10

Lodi again showing all his attacking prowess down the left hand side. Apart from the goal conceded, which was at the fault of the entire defence, Lodi was good throughout.

CB: Willy Boly – 6/10

Having just come back from injury, Willy Boly had the task of holding the tall Kieffer Moore, which he did well. It wasn’t a stunning display from Forests backline, not to mention the the disallowed goal from Boly’s offside header.

CB: Joe Worrall – 6/10

Made a huge block in the first half to keep the game within reach. But much like his partner, it wasn’t the best of days for the Forest backline.

CM: Remo Freuler – 6/10

Freuler really had to to work hard, and dug in deep throughout the 90 minutes. Collectively the midfield struggled with the pace of the game but came away with something.

CM: Ryan Yates – 6/10

Worrying to see him come off, as well as have his goal chalked off.

CM: Orel Mangala – 5/10

A quiet game for Mangala, who provided little in terms of defensive support, especially when Bournemouth were pilling on pressure.

CF: Morgan Gibbs-White – 7/10

Very lively yet again, proving to always be a threat for away side. Created a few decent chances, and all around a solid performance from the English man.

ST: Brennan Johnson – 7/10

Another bright performance in which he came away with an assist to his name, providing a great ball after a terrific attack from the Welsh man.

ST: Chris Wood – 5/10

A fairly average start from the ex-Newcastle man. Clearly needs to adapt to a brand new system, and having only just signed throwing him in the deep was a risky move.

Substitutes: Sam Surridge – 7/10 Danilo – 7/10 Neco Williams – 7/10 Scott McKenna – 6/10 Gustavo Scarpa – 6/10
