Matty Fryatt said the fans played a huge part in Nottingham Forest’s victory at Bournemouth last night.Over 1,300 supporters made the long journey to the south coast and were treated to a dramatic winner courtesy of the striker.
And, while Fryatt admitted after the match that Forest’s performance had been below-par, he said the team were able to take great pleasure from the result.
He said: “We’re absolutely delighted. Performance-wise we weren’t very good, but the fans - to get that turn-out tonight - they kept us going.
“We didn’t string much together in the first half but we showed more grit after the break. To get three points here is a tremendous result.
“Fair play to Bournemouth - they were excellent in the first half and there was only one team in it. But we showed great courage to come back into the game and in the end we managed to nick it.”
Fryatt arrived at The City Ground on a free transfer this summer and is enjoying his early days in a red shirt.
He said: “It’s been new to me. I played a different role against Bournemouth because it wasn’t working with two up top, but I’m enjoying being out there.
“It was a difficult night but fortunately enough I was able to tap in a great cross from Hunty.
“I’ll keep on working for the team and hopefully continue to be part of successful results.”
