Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce said:

"We looked a good side, we looked well-balanced and I thought defensively we were rock-solid against a Forest team that had thumped Arsenal last week and had a new manager in situ.

"It had all the ingredients of being a very difficult game, which we expected, which it was to a degree, but I honestly thought that we were comfortable.

"We were in my opinion by far the better team and we just needed the second goal and that didn't come.

"So long as it gets like that we were a little edgy, but overall I was very pleased with the performance."
