Forest manager Sean O’Driscoll was delighted with his side’s victory at Molineux this afternoon.Billy Sharp cancelled out Bjorn Sigurdarson’s opener, before an Adlene Guedioura screamer ensured Forest left with all three points.
O’Driscoll said: “I thought the first half was a great spectacle because they had the same problems as us. Every time we went forward, their two centre halves would be two-for-two with our centre forwards.
“It was one of those halves where it could have gone either way. We could have won 3-0 or lost 3-0. We had to change something at half time because we were the away team.
“We opted to pull Simon Cox back because they were getting too many crosses in. I don’t think the boys were too happy because I think they thought they could go on and win it.
“But I thought we were more disciplined, more organised and stopped their flow. If we can combine that with the bright attacking play of the first half, we’ll be okay.”
Cox was stretchered off in the second half after a clash with Kevin Foley, and O’Driscoll is not yet sure as to the extent of the Irishman’s injury.
He said: “He heard a crack and as soon as the physios went to him they said he needed a stretcher.
“He’s gone back to Nottingham for an x-ray and we’ll know more in the morning. I think it was a foul but it wasn’t anything deliberate.”
