A deserved point

11 December 2015

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman says the point at Wolves was ‘no more than we deserved’.

The Reds secured a 1-1 draw courtesy of substitute Dexter Blackstock’s goal late in the second half. 

And Freedman believes his side were well worth a share of the spoils. 

He said: “I’m very, very proud of the players. I think it’s no more than we deserved. We controlled the first 15 minutes and last 15 minutes of the game. 

“We’ve got that belief all of a sudden. That belief that we can go to places and win. Now I can bring people off the bench and they can impact the game. 

“I’m very proud of the players coming through the difficult moments and being stronger for it.” 

Freedman admits the home side had their fair share of dangerous attacks but he was delighted with the way his side stayed in the game. 

He said: “Wolves caused us problems at times. They get the ball wide, they get the crowd behind them, they keep the energy levels up.There are other days when we would have caved in. 

"I feel you’ve seen today that in difficult moments we stick in there. We’ve stood strong, kept it down to a 1-0 deficit and in Championship games you’re always going to have an opportunity.”
