A superb goal from Callum Hudson-Odoi in the summer saw Nottingham Forest come from behind to draw 1-1 at home to newly promoted Burnley.

In the first half, a new summer signing, Zeki Amdouni, had given the visitors the lead.

Vincent Kompany’s men thought they had won the match when Lyle Foster headed home, but the match was abandoned due to a handball in the build-up.

Burnley were controversially denied their first win of the season after Lyle Foster ruled out a lae strike during the 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest.

The striker thought he had earned the three points for his team in the second half, after which VAR decided that Sander Berge deliberately touched the ball during the build-up.

The hosts dominated the first 20 minutes but created only one real chance for Callum Hudson-Odoi, denied by James Trafford.

However, a goal was scored as Foster ruled out a goal after Sander Berge used his arm to control the ball during the build-up.

Another late VAR review resulted in Foster being sent off for a dangerous move.

Burnley have every reason to be sad after Foster’s goal was disallowed for handball until late in the second half.

It took a lengthy VAR review before the goal was finally disallowed, with referee Rob Jones looking at the monitor to see whether or not Sander Berge was using his arm to control the build-up.

Once that happened, the final decision was inevitable, but the television footage left no clear conclusion as to whether Berge had intentionally used his arm to control the ball, with contact being minimal. In any case, it was not a clear and obvious error.

Callum Hudson-Odoi (Nottingham Forest). The striker arrived at the City Ground for a small fee but with a big reputation, and in this match he lived up to his promise.

Hudson-Odoi was a constant threat on the left flank and used his pace to great effect, causing endless problems for the Burnley defence.

The visitors had no answer to his ability to cut inside, and it was that dip of the shoulder and dig of the right foot that ultimately brought Forest level as he unleashed a curling shot that found the top corner .
