Gaffer’s Prep Paid Off

19 January 2014

Nottingham Forest midfielder Andy Reid praised his manager’s attention to detail after The Reds’ 4-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers yesterday.

The Republic of Ireland international rounded off a superb Forest performance with an injury-time piledriver but was quick to praise Billy Davies’ approach in light of another excellent result.
 
Reid told Forest Player: “It all comes from the manager. He’s absolutely fantastic all week. He drills into us the fact we need to play and train with a high intensity, the tactics we run through ahead of the game are second to none and we go into every match knowing exactly what we’re up against and how we’re going to beat it.
 
“A lot of credit has to go to the manager and the coaching staff for carrying out that very important job.”
 
An excellent first-half showing saw Forest mount a two-goal lead courtesy of two Henri Lansbury penalties and Reid and Jamie Paterson both notched after the break, rendering Ben Marshall’s earlier strike irrelevant and securing a pleasing three points for The Reds.
 
Reid said: “We’re absolutely delighted. It was a tough game – Blackburn have been on a decent run and they make it difficult for teams but we came into the game with a lot of confidence. I think that showed in the first half an hour. We played some really good football and could probably have been a couple of goals up even before we scored the penalties.
 
“It’s a great win for us. It keeps the momentum going, adds to our goal tally and fills the place with confidence.”
