Quality, creativity and endeavour

13 December 2014

Nottingham Forest assistant manager Steve Wigley believes more quality is required in the final third.

The Reds played out a 0-0 draw at Rotherham’s New York Stadium this afternoon, a match which heralded few clear-cut chances for either side.  

And, while happy with the team’s defensive performance, Wigley is hoping for improvements at the other end of the field.  

Speaking after the match, he said: “It was a tight game and probably a fair result in the end.  

“We were disappointed to have Dexter’s goal wiped out, but we need to have more quality, creativity and endeavour around the final third.  

“We defended well and the only way we were going to concede a goal was from 25 or 30 yards.  

“I think both teams will take a point, but three would have a been a lot better.”  

Blackstock had the ball in the net in the second half only for referee Richard Clark to award a free-kick to Rotherham in the build-up.  

And Wigley was pleased with the striker’s first start since April 2013.  

He said: “I thought he competed very well. He gives us a platform to play off and he’ll only get better.  

“He’s been out for a long time with what an injury that’s tough to come back from.  

“He’s looked better every day in training so he has earned the right to play today.”
