Nottingham Forest winger Chris Burke admitted The Reds were disappointed not to take anything from last night’s 3-1 defeat against Watford, but felt that they could be proud of how they performed.Forest gave the Hornets several scares despite playing the last half an hour with ten men.
Speaking after the match, Burke said: “Obviously we’re disappointed not to get the three points, perhaps even one point, but I think out there we gave it our all.
“It was a fantastic display near the end. I’m sure the fans were enjoying it and us as players, we enjoyed it. We came off the pitch proud of how we gave it a go.”
The sending off of Kelvin Wilson seemed to galvanise The Reds, and Burke admitted they stepped it up in the latter stages of the game.
He said: “When you go down to ten men you think that could be it and Watford would turn us over, but we didn’t let that happen.
“It gave us a little more energy and we stepped it up again. With a bit of luck we could have got that equaliser.
“But Watford are a very good team. If you were to ask me who was going to go up, I’d definitely say Watford will be in the automatic spots.
“They’ve got quality players who move on and off the ball, they’re intelligent, and they deserve to be playing in the Premier League.”
