Nottingham Forest defender Danny Collins believes a point was the correct outcome from yesterday’s 1-1 draw at Ipswich Town.The centre-back nodded home an early opener against his former club and, while Daryl Murphy later grabbed a point for the hosts, Collins was pleased with a resolute display following Tuesday evening’s defeat to Charlton.
Speaking after the game at Portman Road, Collins said: “We went forward with more purpose, pressed them quite high and didn’t let them settle. I was a little disappointed we didn’t knick the second one before half-time.
“It was nice to finally get on the scoresheet today, but the more important thing was it gave us the lead. We haven’t scored too many in recent weeks and it was nice to settle us down a bit and for the rest of the first half we played well, restricted their chances and forced them into making a substitution.
“We knew Mick McCarthy would get into them at half-time so we anticipated they would come out firing. The disappointing thing was we weren’t switched on at the quick free-kick which led to their equaliser and it cost us.
“But overall as a unit we defended well. There were a lot of balls coming into the box - many corners and free-kicks and Karl Darlow was forced into a couple of saves. I think a point was probably a fair result.”
