EFL pundit criticises Lyle Taylor after spotting ‘shithouse’ moment during late equaliser

EFL pundit criticises Lyle Taylor after spotting a ‘shithouse’ moment during Nottingham Forest’s late equaliser at QPR on Friday.

Jack Colback scored a dramatic goal as Steve Cooper’s side held Mark Warburton’s men to a 1-1 draw at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

A tightly-contested encounter looked to have been settled in first half injury time, when ex-Forest winger Albert Adomah picked out Lyndon Dykes, who headed home unmarked.

But the visitors had other ideas as they chased a fifth straight win away from home and managed to get a point on the board when Colback’s strike took a deflection and nestled in the back of the net, causing crazy scenes in the away end.

Regardless of the points dropped, QPR move into the playoff places ahead of the remainder of the weekend’s action, while Forest climb above his former club Swansea into 15th in the Championship table.

After the game, David Prutton picked up on footage appearing to show Lyle Taylor shouting right in Jimmy Dunne’s face to help give the East Midlands outfit that deserved point.

Prutton then took to criticise Taylor, making a dig about the player when it comes to “sportsmanship”, leaving fans puzzled as to what had been done to offend their former player presenting in the Sky Sports studio.

@kainebarr: Did any one see Lyle Taylor run past Dunn and say something to him whilst he was on the floor after we scored ??

POST-MATCH REACTION:

QPR’s Mark Warburton: “It was a nasty deflection, nothing we could really do. I thought we showed lots of character and had a very good second half performance, where we created lots of good chances on the left and right flank and that’s a very painful goal to go in late.

“I think you saw a lot of our fluidity – move the ball forward – our shape was good, we denied them opportunities and we looked very, very dangerous. I’m pleased with the players in terms of the response, but they are hurting in there now.”

“It was a good game and I really liked our performance,” he said. “QPR are a tough team to prepare for, they changed their shape a little bit in midfield and that’s tactically quite hard to deal with.

“What we didn’t want to do was drop and let them take the game to us. We wanted to do the opposite, and we nearly even scored after 10 seconds.

Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper: “It was a good game and I’m just glad that we got something out of it. Mixed feelings, because I felt we should have got three points, but I’m really pleased the boys didn’t lose.

“I really believe it’s about what you do and what you bring to the game. I’m happy we got something out of the game and I can only be positive with the guys today, even if we had lost, because of the way we played.”

The Reds were backed by a tremendous following of over 2,800 on the night, with the away end sent into raptures when Colback netted in stoppage time.

“It is incredible,” Cooper added. “It’s the end of the month and maybe some people haven’t been paid. I really respect that and really appreciate it.

“I’d like to think they wouldn’t have been too disheartened with the performance if we had lost because of the way we played.

“That goal was for them as much as it was for us. I’m proud of our supporters tonight, like I am every game. It is a special support.”
