Patience is a virtue

15 December 2015

Nottingham Forest midfielder Ben Osborn says the visitors’ patience almost paid off at Blackburn last night.

While The Reds’ defensive resilience was heavily tested in the first half, the match swung in Forest’s favour after the break.

And they came within inches of winning the match in injury time when Rovers keeper Jason Steele tipped Matt Mills’ header on to the post.

Osborn said: “Blackburn had two big strikers up front but we dealt well with them. We just had to see it out until half-time and then it opened up for us.

“In the second half I thought we looked the most likely team to score. We hit the post late on, had a free-kick on the edge of the box. To be honest we’re a little bit disappointed not to come away with the three points, but we’ll take the point.”

The Reds are back on home soil this weekend when they host MK Dons.

And Osborn knows a win on Saturday would compliment creditable draws at Molineux and Ewood Park.

He said: “If we win on Saturday it looks like two really good away points. That’s what it’s all about now. We’ve just got to prepare right.

“We’ll have some fresh legs coming back on Saturday. We’ve got a decent squad now so we can rotate and we’ll have an extra day’s rest on MK Dons as well.

“We’re all confident, especially with the home crowd behind us.”
