A very good point

14 March 2015

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman was pleased to take a point away from Elland Road this afternoon.

The Reds were more than a match for their West Yorkshire opponents and had chances to win the match. 

But Freedman was more than happy to come away with a 0-0. 

The manager said: “I think when we’re in the training ground on Monday we’ll look back on it as a very, very good point. 

“We were never really in any serious defensive situations and I felt we had one or two opportunities. On another day we’d take them. 

“I think it shows how far we’ve come that we now expect to come to places like Leeds and win games of football. We don’t hope, we don’t want anymore - we expect to win.  

“Sometimes you’ve got to be realistic and accept coming to Elland Road, against a very difficult side with a big crowd behind them, that it’s a good point.” 

The result narrowed the gap between Forest and the play-off places to eight points, but Freedman is solely focused on remaining in the top-six hunt after the Easter double header. 

He said: “We probably need at least a win and a draw from our next two games.  

“I would just like to keep hope alive until we play Wolves and Brentford.”
