North End weren't without their own chances, hitting the bar a few times, and the deciding penalty was also surrounded with controversy.
Here's how the players fared on the day...
1. Declan Rudd - 6
Had very little to do throughout the day and penalties are pot luck, which even then came with the added bonus of Grabban slipping and possibly changing the direction.
2. Darnell Fisher - 6
Had a pretty solid game but let himself down by giving the penalty away. Silly of him to dive towards the ball with his arm out, moments of madness can let him down.
3. Paul Huntington - 7
Kept the Forest forwards quiet throughout really, and they don't come cheap. Reliable in the defence in a game where they did their job admirably.
4. Ben Davies - 7
Continues to show what a fine player he is, even popped up in the opposition box and showed good feet before hitting the bar.
