Derby County defender Craig Forsyth believes the sending off and penalty changed the game in the 2-2 draw with Torquay United in the Emirates FA Cup First Round on Sunday afternoon.

Derby were two goals ahead thanks to a pair of strikes from Will Osula, but Eiran Cashin's red card before the hour mark and two goals for the National League side saw them fight back to earn a replay at Pride Park Stadium.

Forsyth spoke to RamsTV following the match to give his thoughts on a tough day on the south coast.

On the game…

We were in control for most of the first half and probably should have been more ahead.

The sending off and penalty changed the game and gave them a massive lift and the crowd a lift too.

On what the young players will gain from the experience…

I think all the young boys will have learned that these cup ties can cause upsets.

You’ve got to match the opposition in effort first of all and show that your quality is why you’re playing above them, but I don’t think we did that enough today and the young ones will learn from it.

On Liverpool in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday…

Roles are now reversed where the pressure will be off us a little bit, but we want to go there and put on a performance and try and win.

I’ve been involved in matches like that before here and we’ve managed to beat the so-called bigger team so hopefully we can do it again.

On the travelling fans…

They always turn out in their numbers no matter where we go. It’s really appreciated and hopefully it continues. There’s a big month ahead of away games so we are going to need them.
