Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Karl Darlow says the number of chances his teammates created at Barnsley bodes well for future matches.The Reds had 19 efforts at goal in the 1-0 defeat at Oakwell and Darlow, who was helpless to prevent Dale Jennings from scoring the winning goal shortly after the break, is confident things will soon turn around.
Speaking to Forest Player after the match, he said: “It was a frustrating afternoon. Unfortunately things didn’t go our way. A little ricochet might have changed the game for us but that’s the way it’s going for us. Unfortunately I was unsighted for the goal so I didn’t have much time to dive.
“But we’re having chances at the other end and it’s going to turn around for us at some point. We’re all together - we’ve got a good team here and we’re fully positive we can stay in the playoffs and make a good push.”
The Reds head to Middlesbrough on Tuesday night to take on a side who dented Ipswich’s hopes of sneaking into the playoffs with a 2-0 victory over The Tractor Boys at The Riverside Stadium yesterday.
And Darlow is targeting the Teesside trip as an opportunity to get back to winning ways after the Tykes defeat.
He said: “We’ve got a chance to put things right straight away. We’ll come back together on Monday and get prepared to hopefully turn Middlesbrough over at their place.”
