Nottingham Forest deputy manager Ned Kelly was happy to take a point from Vicarage Road after The Reds drew 1-1 with Watford this afternoon.Andy Reid’s early strike was cancelled out by Lewis McGugan’s second half free-kick and Kelly was content to walk away with a draw from such a tough encounter.
He told Forest Player: “I thought we played really well this afternoon, this is a difficult place to come and they have a lot of quality players so a point is a good result for us and we’re pleased.
“We had a lot of good chances, including a couple of one-on-ones with the keeper which we should have done better with, but we’ll take the point.”
Kelly admitted he was pleased to watch The Reds go in front early on but said after a strong first 45 minutes, the players will be disappointed not to have taken maximum points from the game.
He said: “We’ve been working on coming out of the blocks quickly and to be fair, we controlled the majority of the first half but just couldn’t get into that important 2-0 lead.
“At the end of the day, the players are disappointed that they couldn’t take all three points but that only shows how high the expectations have risen, and that can only be a good thing.”
