Never Say Die

22 September 2013

Nottingham Forest midfielder Andy Reid has told Forest Player that he is impressed with the character and determination shown in yesterday’s 2-2 draw with Doncaster Rovers.

Reid pulled The Reds level for a second time with a spectacular 20-yard strike but the Irishman admitted the squad felt they should have taken maximum points from The Keepmoat Stadium.

He said: “We’ve got that never-say-die attitude which will stand us in good stead for the season. Having said that, we’re still disappointed that after getting back to 2-2 we couldn’t go on and win the game.

“We created most of the chances and had the majority of possession and territory so we do think we should have taken three points. We feel that we have the players to go anywhere in this league and win but that’s football.”

Forest poured forward in the final stages in search of a winner and although they couldn’t find that all-important third goal, Reid insists The Reds will keep their heads up as they head to Burnley on Tuesday night for a Capital One Cup third round tie.

Reid said: “They seemed to have so many bodies behind the ball when we attacked but we need to be a bit more inventive and have more quality in the final third.

“We aren’t too despondent because we’ve still only lost one game this season and we’re on a decent run but we feel like it was two points dropped.”
