Nottingham Forest first-team coach Brian Eastick believes a draw was the right result at the DW Stadium this evening.The Reds played out their third consecutive 0-0 draw in the Sky Bet Championship and, despite some late chances for The Reds, Eastick had no qualms with the scoreline.
He said: “I think on reflection the result was about right. Particularly in the first half I thought it was a very close game. Wigan played the ball forward more than we thought they would - Stuart and I came to watch them against Ipswich and they played through the pitch a lot.
“But possibly because they haven’t had great results lately Uwe Rosler told them to get the ball forward a bit quicker.
“We created a few chances where we could have nicked it. Michail Antonio at the back post - in the first half and second half - and Jack Hunt got forward and drove a great ball across the box which we very nearly got on the end of.
“You could possibly say we shaded it on chances in the last 20 minutes or so but overall a point was about right.”
Forest are back in action at The City Ground at the weekend and Eastick is looking for an improved performance on last Saturday’s home draw with Brighton.
He said: “The focus now is on Ipswich next Sunday.
“It’s really important we play better than we did against Brighton and take three points, then we can give the players a bit of a rest during the international break.”
