Nottingham Forest welcomed Reading to the City Ground on Tuesday night in the Championship looking for three points, but it was not to be.
A first half goal from Omar Richards arrived in the 40th minute when a shot on Costel Pantilimon in the Forest net was pushed away but only as far as the Reading defender, who gave the visitors the lead.
Lee Tomlin scored a late equaliser but supporters were furious with manager Aitor Karanka for the result with one supporter saying, ‘that’s probably game over to you again.’
The Spaniard only took charge of the side following Mark Warburton’s sacking in January and his appointment is yet to have the desired effect as the club continue to flounder.
Forest haven’t won in six outings in the Championship but finally got a goal after failing to register in their last eight.
A 2-0 win over Wolves and a victory against Arsenal in the FA Cup have been the only real highlights in an otherwise disappointing season.
QPR are next in line for Aitor Karanka’s side and judging by the reaction of supporters on Twitter, three points are a must.
I'm trying to be patient with Karanka but I'm starting to get a bit nervous.

Karanka came in at the wrong time, and made far too many changes. #nffc

I wouldn't be proud about not scoring in 8 matches as a manager.

Only earlier on Tuesday, the club revealed that teenage sensation Keith Asare had signed his first professional contract with the club.
