Wigley salutes superb support

26 August 2014

Steve Wigley hailed the travelling Nottingham Forest support after The Reds 2-0 win over Huddersfield tonight.

The assistant manager praised the fans who had made the trip to West Yorkshire in support of their side as they progressed through to the third round of the Capital One Cup.

Speaking to Forest player, he said: “There won’t be another club in the competition that will have had a following like we had tonight away from home.

“I think they’re enjoying it at the minute and we’re certainly enjoying their support.  “We knew when Stuart came back into the club we’d get a reaction but we’ve built on that and now we need to build on it some more.”

Wigley praised the players who came into the side after manager Stuart Pearce made seven changes to the team that beat Reading at The City Ground on Saturday.

“It helps when you’ve got good players coming into the side. Jamaal Lascelles, Henri Lansbury, Robert Tesche and Ben Osborn’s been champing at the bit – I could go on naming names all night.

“I didn’t feel that we were weakening the team, we’ve got a very good squad.”  And Wigley had a special mention for Henri Lansbury, who made a goalscoring return to the side after a long lay-off.

“He’s a player who I believe is capable of playing in the Premier League and tonight he showed flashes and touches of that.

“He’ll only help make us a better team.”
