Nottingham Forest fans react to Matty Cash’s display vs Wigan

A football punter in the United Kingdom has missed out on an incredible $1.74 million windfall because of an unbelievable twist of fate.

With seconds remaining of the 3pm kick-offs, one individual was on to claim the £1m jackpot on Sky Sports' Super 6.

The punter had already predicted five scorelines and was sweating on Wigan beating Nottingham Forest 2-1 in the Championship.

Nottingham Forest managed to pick up a single point in their second game of the season, and although this fixture may seem irrelevant at the end of the season, one punter will be still ruing his luck on that terrible day in August.

In the 90th minute, Wigan Athletic - leading 2-1 at the time - conceded a penalty to Nottingham Forest.

The punter would have been praying that Forest missed the spot kick, and his prayers initially looked to have been answered.

It had looked like the Wigan man's strike would be the victor, until Reds' sub Hillal Soudani climbed off the bench to tuck away the rebound from Lewis Grabban's missed penalty right at the death, handing Forest a share of the spoils.

You couldn't get any closer to $1.7 million if you tried.

Perhaps rubbing more salt in the wounds for the Reds' striker was the fact that it was Hillal Soudani, one of several players vying for a starting place in Forest's attack, who pounced to tuck away the rebound following Grabban's misfortune.

Better luck next time pal.
