Podence grabs late equaliser for Wolves at Forest

Daniel PodenceNottingham Forest have conceded 12 goals in the last 15 minutes of Premier League matches this season - more than any other team

Daniel Podence scored a late equaliser as Wolves held Nottingham Forest to a draw - a result that did neither any favours as they fight to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

Podence fired home his sixth goal of the season by opening up his body and curling past Keylor Navas to grab a point at the City Ground.

Brennan Johnson, who did not join Wales for international duty because of a groin injury, had put Forest ahead in the first half.

Johnson finished from the tightest of angles - and through the legs of Jose Sa - after getting on the end of Danilo's ball.

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 had spat in his direction, but Chris Kavanagh took no action after a VAR check.
