A Bitter Pill To Swallow

20 October 2013

Nottingham Forest skipper Chris Cohen has told Forest Player of his disappointment after the 1-1 draw with AFC Bournemouth.

The Reds were leading as the clock ticked past 90 minutes but Marc Pugh squeezed home a stoppage-time equaliser to leave Cohen and his teammates hugely frustrated.

Speaking after the game, the captain told Forest Player: “After we had defended so well to keep them out, to concede a last-minute goal is bitterly disappointing.

“With such a big crowd in and after having so many chances, we’re frustrated not to have taken all three points.

“As a team we have to be more clinical. That isn’t as strikers, midfielders or defenders that is as a team. We’ve all had chances but we haven’t put them away.”

Despite the nature of the result against The Cherries, Cohen was quick to accentuate the positives ahead of next Saturday’s trip to his former club Yeovil Town.

He said: “On the positive side we have kept our unbeaten run going and taken another point. We’ll work hard in training this week and prepare to get a good result at Yeovil next weekend.

“If we can get three points at Yeovil then this becomes a good point. Sometimes you have to look at the bigger picture and remember we’ve only had one defeat in 12 league matches.”
