Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Karl Darlow says a hard-working performance from ‘front to back’ helped him preserve his fourth consecutive clean sheet last night.The 23 year old kept out a star-studded Queens Park Rangers side in yesterday’s 2-0 victory, but he was keen to heap praise not only on his back four but the team as a whole.
Darlow told Forest Player: “Everyone is delighted with another very good performance. I thought we worked extremely hard from front to back and we got the three points we deserved.
“QPR are flying and I was expecting a busy game. We restricted them in terms of shots and in the end I didn’t have a lot to do.
“There is enough quality in our squad to score goals. If we can keep defending with the gritty determination we are currently showing hopefully we can pick up more clean sheets.”
Darlow has well and truly established himself as The Reds’ number one and he says he is looking forward to continuing his progression with another strong performance against Leeds on Sunday.
He said: “All I’ve ever wanted to do is play games. The gaffer has shown faith in me and I just want to repay him for that by working hard and continuing to perform as I am.
“Leeds is another big game for us. I think we’ll need our running legs again so we need to show the same level of hard work we did today. Hopefully we’ll get another positive result.”
