'We deserved to take the win'

17 August 2014

Dan Harding believes Nottingham Forest were unfortunate not to come away from the Macron Stadium with three points.

Forest were in charge for the vast majority of the match but two sloppy pieces of defending led to them twice going behind in the first half.

Britt Assombalonga pulled Forest back from behind both times and The Reds looked likely to win the match in the second half.

Speaking after the game, Harding said: “We were disappointed with the two goals we conceded but the gaffer was pleased with the character we showed.

“We got ourselves back in the game and I thought we were really unlucky not to go on and win it in the second half. But a point away from home in the Championship is a positive.”

The result continued Stuart Pearce’s unbeaten run since taking charge of the club this summer and Harding says he and his teammates are happy under the guidance of their new gaffer.

He said: “It’s been brilliant since he’s come in. It’s been a challenge but thoroughly enjoyable. He’s brought in some very good players and a lot of people are very positive about it.

“The gaffer’s very experienced and we go out there and try to listen to what he wants. That’s proving positive at the moment.

“The boys are all working hard to achieve one goal.”
