A Good Point

11 January 2014

Billy Davies was pleased with the point his Nottingham Forest side earned at Bolton’s Reebok Stadium this afternoon.

Jamie Paterson scored his fourth goal in two matches to hand The Reds a second-half lead but Forest were pegged back by Matt Mills’ header from a free-kick with 15 minutes to play.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, the Reds boss said: “It was a frantic game of football which could have gone either way. We had good chances, like the home side, and in the end a point’s a good result away from home.

“Simon Cox came on and made a difference for us in the second half, he did well for the goal and it was a great finish by Jamie Paterson.

“But losing Hobbs dismantled us. Danny Collins has been out for a long time and we had to throw him on, despite wanting to give him a run out in a reserve game on Monday. Up until then we handled their set-pieces brilliantly.”

Hobbs’ injury will be assessed in the coming days, and his manager moved to clarify Forest’s position regarding the player’s future.

He said: “Jack wants to stay with us. Now it’s up to the two clubs (Forest and Hull) to sort things out.”
