Jamie Paterson feels that Nottingham Forest could have had "a couple more goals" in their win over West Bromwich Albion yesterday.
The left winger, speaking to Forest Player after the Reds beat the Premier League side 1-0
, said the squad more than matched their high-profile opposition.
He said: "We haven't conceded a goal against a Premier League team and we feel like we've held our own.
"It was a good result in the end and we feel like we could have had another couple of goals."
Paterson played the full 90 minutes on Wednesday night away at York, but said that he still felt fresh in the clash against the Baggies after a tough pre-season.
"I played 90 on Wednesday but I didn't feel too bad today, I felt quite sharp.
"The first few games were a bit hard because it was hot and we were abroad but when you come back here and play games when it's cool you feel the effects.
"You feel a lot sharper and feel like you can breathe a lot more. I felt good today."
And Paterson seemed to strike up a good partnership with new signings Matty Fryatt and Chris Burke, who played together as a front three from the start.
"Matt's a good finisher and you can see he did that today. He can play that role up front really well and Burkey's come in and you can tell he works his socks off and gets stuck in defensively and going forward as well."
