Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Karl Darlow praised his defence after yesterday’s 3-0 win at Reading.
Darlow kept an impressive clean sheet at the Madejski Stadium as Forest made it five wins from six matches
And, while he was called into action on occasion, he was grateful to the men in front of him for stemming the flow towards his goal.
Speaking after yesterday’s match, Darlow said: “I didn’t have too much to do in all fairness. We defended really well.
“They came at us at the end of the first half with a lot of crosses but we defended well in the main.
“I made a couple of saves in the second half but other than that we were pretty steady at the back. We’re delighted with the three points and the clean sheet.”
The win took Forest to within nine points of the playoffs ahead of today’s match between Norwich and Ipswich.
And, although Darlow accepts he and his team-mates will find it tough to break into the top six before the end of the season, he believes the campaign is far from over.
He added: “I said a couple of weeks ago that we need to gain momentum, and I think we are. We’re playing better.
“The playoffs are obviously a long way off still but results have gone our way today. We’ll just keep grinding at it and see how we go.
“There are 12 games left now and we just need to keep picking up as many points as we can.”
