An incredible afternoon

15 February 2015

Nottingham Forest full back Eric Lichaj says he had ‘never been a part of anything like’ yesterday’s 4-4 draw at Blackpool.

The Reds were pegged back in injury time after a second half which comprised seven goals, a penalty and a sending off.  

And Lichaj’s bemusement at what had occurred was evident when he spoke to the media after the match.  

He said: “I don’t think I’ve ever been part of a game like this one. For one, the pitch wasn’t very good for us to play our usual game. I’ve never played on anything like this in my life. I didn’t want to pass it back to Darlow because it was really risky and the ball was bobbling up on Henri’s knee at times.  

“It was a difficult day but in the end we should have done better, we should have had three points instead of one. I’ve never been a part of something like this and hopefully I never will again!”  

Forest were seconds away from making it nine points from nine under Freedman’s guidance.  

And, while The Reds were disappointed not to secure their third victory in a row, Lichaj is pleased with the progress he and his teammates are making.  

He said: “Seven points out of nine means we’re looking up the table instead of down now.  

“Hopefully we can keep putting points on the board and you never know come the end of the season.”
