Nottingham Forest midfielder Andy Reid has told Forest Player that last night’s 2-2 draw at Millwall could prove to be a crucial result in their season.The Reds had twice fallen behind at The Den but goals from Reid and Nathaniel Chalobah rescued a point for Forest and the skipper for the evening had plenty of praise for his side’s battling performance.
He said: “We’re disappointed not to have won the game but we showed a lot of resilience to fight back twice. Millwall make it really difficult but at times I thought we played some great football.
“Their second goal was crucial but the lads showed good spirit to hit back. We’re relatively happy with a draw and we might look back on this as an excellent point come the end of the season.”
Billy Davies was without a number of first-team players for last night’s clash and Reid admits that every member of the squad will play their part in the weeks and months to come.
He said: “We don’t want to use injuries as an excuse because we have a fantastic squad. The players who came into the side did really well and I think we’ll see the benefit of that squad in the games over Christmas and New Year.
“As the manager has said we just need to stay with the pack. We need to keep picking up points away from home and start to win a few more games at home and we’ll be fine.
“We just need to keep pace with the top six over Christmas. Then if we can go on a good run after that then we’ll put ourselves in a good position to get to where we want to be.”
