Jamie Paterson said he was delighted to salvage a point for ten-man Nottingham Forest last night.3-2 down against Sheffield Wednesday with just three minutes to go, the 22 year old scored a stunning free-kick to complete The Reds’ comeback.
And the young winger was pleased with the fight the side showed.
He said: “It’s a great point. We were 3-1 down and showed great spirit to come back and get a well-earned point.
“Unluckily we found ourselves 3-1 down – we didn’t think we deserved that and when we had ten men at the end we were still pushing, so it’s all positive.”
Joe Mattock scored for Sheffield Wednesday to make the score 3-1 just after half-time, but substitute Marcus Tudgay pulled one back for Forest to give the whole team a lift.
Paterson added: “We just felt a little bit confident at the end. When we got the second goal we felt the crowd behind us and it really helped us push on. In the end we nearly got the win.”
The equaliser came after a long break in play, during which Paterson stood over the ball waiting for the referee’s whistle, a pause which didn’t faze him.
Paterson said: “I felt confident stepping up. It hit the back of the net and we nearly went on to win in the end."
“It's possibly my favourite Forest goal considering we were 3-1 down. It was a nice time to score an important goal.”
