The Leeds manager has not been full of praise for Dougie Freedman this season.
Nelson Oliveira grabbed the winning goal in a tight affair - in which a well drilled Forest side continued their unbeaten league run.
"It was like watching paint dry but I'd rather be watching my team winning."
Earlier in the season he said that Freedman's comments regarding allowing Leeds possession to hurt them on the counter attack at the City ground was "the biggest bunkum I’ve ever heard from a football manager," as reported by LUTV.
So it is fair to say Evans is not the biggest fan.
Speaking to BBC Radio Leeds yesterday Freedman was asked about comments from Evans about his playing style and he handled himself with slightly more gravitas than his Glasgow rival:
"I don't need to respond I am not that kind of person.
"I am full in control of my situation and am fully in control of my football club and I only comment on my football club.
"I am not a good enough manager yet to comment on other people's styles or degrade anyone's way of playing.
"I have got a job to do and contrary to what anybody else thinks I thought we played very well on and off the ball and we created enough opportunities to win the game more comfortably.
"As far as commenting on other professional managers, that is not my style."
Leeds United, in Evans' eyes, may play better football but it is not winning them games. Forest's gameplan has them unbeaten in the league this year and closing in on the play-offs.
It is not difficult to decide which fans are happier.
