A fair outcome

30 April 2016

Nottingham Forest head coach Paul Williams thought his side could have ‘snuck’ victory today, but felt a draw was fair.

The Reds drew 1-1 with Wolverhampton Wanderers in their final home game of the season, Gary Gardner equalising in the second half with an excellent free-kick.

And, despite Forest’s best efforts, the game ended in a draw.

Williams said: “First half we huffed and puffed but in the second half we took the game to them a bit more – Oliver Burke made an impact when he came on.

“At home we’ve got to try and win games and I thought we tried to do that second half.

“We created a lot of chances - not clear-cut chances, but I think we could have snuck it 2-1.

“But it was a fair result in the end.”

Forest complete their season with a trip to League One-bound MK Dons on Saturday.

And Williams says the players will have to shake off some fatigue to ensure they end the campaign on a high.

He said: “The players are just tired now - you could see it in the first-half performance. Last week we really took the game to Fulham, but this week we were leggy.

“We need one last big push to make sure we go into the last game trying to win it.”
