Nottingham Forest striker Dexter Blackstock said Wolves' opening goal just after half-time in yesterday’s 2-1 defeat at The City Ground was a ‘devastating blow’.Blackstock scored a consolation for Forest in injury-time after Benik Afobe and Bakary Sako had given the visitors an unassailable lead.
Speaking to Forest Player, the striker said: “It’s a massive blow to come out for the second half with a plan and a structure and it all goes out of the window when you concede that quickly. It was a devastating blow, there’s no two ways about it.
“But after that I thought we were growing into the game, then they get another goal, and it’s always difficult to come from two goals down.
“I thought it was fairly even and they just got the goals at the right time. There wasn’t a massive gulf in terms of performance.”
It was The Reds' first defeat at The City Ground under Dougie Freedman and Blackstock added that the side just need to take each game as it comes from now until the end of the campaign.
He said: “We need to concentrate on winning on Monday at Brentford. That’s all we can do, keep picking up three points.
“In the main we’ve been on a very good run since the new manager’s come in. We’re still adapting to the way he plays and what he wants.
“We were never going to win every game from when he came in until the end of the season.”
