Pato pleased with away point

14 December 2014

Jamie Paterson believes Rotherham and Nottingham Forest ‘cancelled each other out’ at the New York Stadium yesterday.

The two sides played out a 0-0 draw as The Reds moved up to ninth in the Sky Bet Championship.  

And Paterson, who played the full 90 minutes, admitted it was a tough encounter.  

Speaking after the match, he said: “It was a difficult game at a difficult place to come to.  

“I thought we had a good couple of opportunities at the end when we maybe could have nicked it but it’s a clean sheet.  

“It was a battle out there - a lot of headers, a lot of tackles. Both teams worked really hard and cancelled each other out I suppose.  

“You’ll always take a point away from home.”  

After finding playing opportunities hard to come by earlier in the season, Paterson is now hoping to cement his place in Stuart Pearce’s long-term plans - and the manager’s starting 11 for next week’s clash with Leeds United at The City Ground.  

He said: “I always feel I can do better - get a goal or an assist. But I’m happy to be back, playing two 90 minutes in a row and feeling a lot fitter. I’m back in the side now and looking to keep my shirt.  

“Leeds are a big club, like ourselves, and it’ll be a very good atmosphere. Hopefully we can go and get the three points and, personally, I can score or set up a goal.”
