Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies was delighted to see his side’s offensive approach pay off in this afternoon’s 2-1 victory at Hull City.The Reds went in to the break 1-0 down courtesy of a George Boyd sucker punch seconds before the break.
But Darius Henderson and Lewis McGugan turned the scoreline on its head to seal three crucial points and a sixth consecutive win.
And Davies, who instructed his side simply to ‘go out and win the second half’, was thrilled with the outcome.
He said: “I thought we battled brilliantly in the second half. We went for it with our substitutions - we put on forward-thinking players, we got a fantastic goal through Henderson and then McGugan did what he does best to put us in front.
“We caused ourselves problems after that - we conceded silly free-kicks outside the box, got caught in possession too often and gave cheap balls away.
“That allowed Hull one or two opportunities but we defended superbly.
“Psychologically it’s a big win for us. It’s an important three points which we pull back from Hull and one or two others near us in the table. We’ll just keep doing what we can.”
