Warriors fullback Tendayi Darikwa’s Championship Club Nottingham Forest was held to a 0-0 draw by Derby County.
Darikwa almost conceded a penalty during the match after he appeared to foul Tom Lawrence. However, the referee Keith Stroud waved play on.
Commenting on the penalty incident after the match, Derby Manager Frank Lampard had this to say
I think that the most staunch Nottingham Forest fan in the far side of the stadium thought that was a penalty. The easiest penalty to give is one where the striker gets a touch, clearly, and the defender follows through and catches him in the waist, clearly. The referee is on his own in his opinion that wasn’t a penalty. It was a game-changer.
However, Nottingham Forest manager Aitor Karanka has a different view. He said
I don’t know if it was a penalty. The referee was closer than me and if he made that decision it’s because he felt it was the right decision.
