Two Points Dropped

1 January 2014

Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies expressed his disappointment after seeing his side concede an injury-time equaliser at Reading this afternoon.

Stephen Kelly nodded home from a free-kick in the 95th minute to cancel out Greg Halford’s first-half header and, despite having a number of chances to put the game out of sight, The Reds had to settle for a point.

Their manager told Forest Player: “Before today we were looking at a very difficult away game. Under normal circumstances we would have been quite pleased with a draw. But there’s no doubt we’re disappointed to have lost two points.

“The game should have been dead and buried before injury time. We’re creating chances and dominating games but leaving ourselves open to throwing points away late on.

“We had some great chances and probably deserved to keep another clean sheet. I thought the back five worked extremely hard but we switched off with ten seconds remaining and afforded them a free header.

“You can get greedy in this game, but it should have been three wins from three. When you have teams on the ropes you have to be ruthless.”
