Ned: 'A Great Result'

2 February 2014

Nottingham Forest deputy manager Ned Kelly hailed this afternoon's 3-1 win over Yeovil Town as "a great result".

Forest opened the scoring through a Byron Webster own-goal before Yeovil's Kieffer Moore leveled the scores. But strikes from Simon Cox and debutant Rafik Djebbour put the seal on a fifth consecutive home league win and Kelly was impressed with the way The Reds controlled the game.

He told Forest Player: “It’s a great result for us because we knew it would be a very difficult game. Yeovil won at Birmingham and took a 2-0 lead at Derby in recent weeks so we knew they would pose a threat.

“When we went 2-1 up we looked to be in a commanding position but we had to defend well against a determined Gary Johnson team. We were delighted to see the game out and carry on the momentum.”

Forest have now scored 16 goals in their last five home matches and Kelly was thrilled with The Reds’ attacking display.

Kelly said: “We’ve created a lot of chances at The City Ground this season and we’re delighted to have scored three more this afternoon. We could have had more but we’re happy with the end result.

“Coxy has scored eight now in 15 starts so his goalscoring stats are very good. Then Rafik comes on and gets himself a poacher’s goal which was obviously very pleasing. All in all it was a very good afternoon’s work for us.”
