A Missed Opportunity

21 September 2013

Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies has told Forest Player that his side ‘missed an opportunity’ in their 2-2 draw with Doncaster Rovers this afternoon.

Forest fought back twice from a losing position with goals from Chris Cohen and Andy Reid but their manager believes that his charges should have left The Keepmoat Stadium with all three points and must improve on their attacking play.

The Reds boss said: “Sometimes a point away from home is a good result but today I thought we should have had all three. We dominated the opening half an hour today but we’ve got to do more in the final third with both the cross and the shot.

Both Forest goals impressed the manager and he was also delighted with the impact of his substitutes in the second half as The Reds clinched a second successive draw.

He said: “We’ve scored a couple of superb goals this afternoon. Chris Cohen’s strike was fantastic and Andy Reid’s was outstanding. There was only one team in it in the final ten minutes but we missed a couple of chances to take the win.

“We knew we needed to freshen things up in the second half and I thought the substitutes that came on were excellent. They provided that extra bit of impetus which pushed us on to get a point.

Over four thousand Forest fans made the journey to South Yorkshire, filling the away end, and the manager had nothing but admiration for their tremendous support.

He said: “It makes me laugh every time because the supporters are so fantastic. They do the club proud every week with the way they behave and the way they conduct themselves.”
