Nottingham Forest manager Sabri Lamouchi said:

"It's difficult to react. I'm here just because it's obligatory to be here. I don't have words. Disaster.

"It is a disaster to lose everything in the last game at home, of course.

"But to believe all the season about the play-offs and to lose and put away the play-offs like that, it's just our fault. I don't have more words. I'm so sorry. I'm sorry to the fans, sorry for the last few games.

"One point was enough tonight, it was enough a few days ago and was enough last week and we were so close, but it was a disaster."
