He had little to do, except make a mistake that won the game for Sheffield Wednesday, but it was enough for Nottingham Forest keeper Dimitar Evtimov to earn his side's man of the match award.

The 22 year-old Bulgarian got a late call-up to the side following an injury to Dorus de Vries but it was his error that cost Forest a share of the spoils at Hillsborough.

Fernando Forestieri's strike was well-hit and on target, but the stopper fluffed at it and the ball squirmed under his arms.

Boss Dougie Freedman said afterwards: "I thought we competed well and I don't think there was a lot in the game.

"Unfortunately there was an error from an inexperienced young goalkeeper, who we had to call on, which was a difficult one to swallow. Otherwise, I thought he did well.

"It was an unfortunate error but he'll learn from that and we've got to move on."

Apparently Forest fans voted for the keeper because they felt Freedman was overly critical of Evtimov.
