Nottingham Forest striker Lars Veldwijk has described yesterday’s 0-0 draw with Brighton as ‘frustrating’.The Dutch striker entered the fray with 13 minutes remaining and so nearly gave Forest the lead with his first touch of the game.
But he failed to get on the end of Danny Fox’s free-kick and The Reds couldn’t break through the Brighton back line in the latter stages of the contest.
Speaking to Forest Player, he said: “We were better than Brighton and we have to win at home, but sometimes that happens.
“I think if someone had scored a goal, either Brighton or us, they would have won the game and it was difficult.”
Veldwijk started away at Tottenham Hotspur in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday and called the night ‘a beautiful experience’.
But yesterday was a lot tougher for The Reds, although they remain unbeaten in the league.
“It’s good that we’re still unbeaten but I think we had to win today. It’s frustrating.”
The Dutchman came within an inch of grabbing a goal his first goal for the club and could well have given Forest the win.
“It was so close to a goal. I think we should have won this match.”
