Sean O’Driscoll was pleased with what he saw after his Reds side denied Middlesbrough their seventh consecutive away win this evening.The game finished 0-0 but the hosts had a number of chances to win it with Billy Sharp going closest when he hit the post in the second half.
And Forest boss O’Driscoll had praise for his side despite their inability to convert chances into goals.
He said: “I think we did extremely well today. I’m pleased with the way we tried to move the ball and how we played in general.
“Tactically we did really well, we just need to turn draws into wins, we all know that.
“Middlesbrough are a footballing side, I’ve watched them three times and they and Leicester are probably the two best teams I’ve seen.
“They’ve won six away games on the trot and were excellent when I watched them against Sunderland. They’re fluid going forward, they don’t get flustered and can play the same way all the time.
“There were quite a few half-chances which we should have done better with. Andy Reid should have scored, Billy hit the post and there were a couple of headers in the first half.
“We had the chances to win it.”
