Freedman delighted with fantastic Forest

18 March 2015

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman described his side’s performance in the 2-0 win over Rotherham as ‘fantastic’ and ‘professional’.

Goals from Dexter Blackstock and Michail Antonio just before half-time were enough to give The Reds their fifth win in a row at The City Ground.

And Freedman heaped praise on his players after their seventh win in ten games, saying they executed his game plan perfectly.

He said: “I thought it was a fantastic performance, a really professional performance. We managed it well, grew into the game and took our chances when they came along.

“We had a plan tonight to dampen the game in the first 15 minutes and we knew the chances would come.

“I thought it was a very comfortable win and we could have won by more goals. We played some fantastic football in the second half."

Modou Barrow and Tyler Walker both made their Forest debuts as late substitutes, and Freedman had particular praise for academy graduate Walker.

He said: “He’s a credit to his family that young boy. I was desperate to get him on and he showed some lovely touches.

“Credit again to the youth development staff here. They are producing young players and they’ve got a manager who has absolutely no fear in putting young players in. I will continue doing that.”
