HILDEBERTO PEREIRA was sent off after coming as a substitute to help Nottingham Forest rescue a point in a 2-2 draw at Villa Park.

Pereira, 20, came on in the 63rd minute and assisted Forest’s late equaliser in a four-goal encounter against Premier League relegated Aston Villa.

The Portuguese played a clever one-two and making his way into the box before finding Henri Lansbury, who slotted home from 15 yards out.

However, Pereira picked up a second yellow card in the 88th minute when high emotions took him to celebrate with fans.

The first yellow came less than two minutes before the sending off when he got involved in a dispute not related to him.

Apostolos Vellios smashed in Forest’s opener after the break, Villa’s Jordan Ayew hit the bar before creating Ross McCormack’s 72-minute equaliser and Rudy Gestede’s acrobatic finish put the hosts ahead two minutes after.
