Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman says it’s only a matter of time before his team start getting the points they deserve.The Reds were on course for an impressive victory at Huddersfield this evening, only to be pegged back in the 84th minute with a heavily deflected goal for the hosts.
Despite that disappointment, Freedman remained level headed and optimistic for the future.
Speaking after the match, the manager said: “I thought our performance was once again fantastic. We really did control the midfield and created enough opportunities to win the game. A wicked deflection has given them a point.
“At this particular moment we’re not getting the points we deserve from our performances. The players are putting every effort in. They look well organised but, cruelly, we only take a point.
“I’m on the right track for taking the team up the division. I’m very comfortable saying, as long as we continue in our ways, we’ll get our return in terms of points.”
Michael Mancienne put in a solid display on his return to the team and Freedman is looking forward to welcoming more of his injured troops back into the first-team fray.
He said: “The physios have done very well working on him. I feel Michael’s a huge part of what we try to do. We need to get a couple of injured players back - we were missing Matt Mills tonight.
“A lot has gone against us but there’s enough in there for me and the Forest fans to be satisfied there’s progress.”
