Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury believes the team didn’t get what they deserved from last night’s match against Brighton.
The Reds were dealt a cruel blow in second-half injury time when Steve Sidwell scored the winner.
And Man of the Match Lansbury was left with a sense of injustice after full-time.
He said: “It’s a gutting feeling – the way we played, I think we deserved much more than what we got.
“I had a chance, Dex had a chance – I think that’s the rub of the green we’re having at the minute. It won’t quite go in.
“The boys had the confidence to pop the ball round – I don’t think Brighton got near us for 15-20 minutes. We were on the front foot, we were in their face and we didn’t give them time.
“It helps when we play like that so we’ll take the positives out of tonight and go again on Saturday.”
Lansbury excelled in attacking midfield – a role he enjoys more than any other.
He said: “I think you can see that’s where I enjoy playing the most. It’s nice to take the shackles off and have a run about instead of sitting in holding midfield.
“It lets me express myself and it gives me that free role – if I want to go deep to get the ball I can, if I want to stay up next to Dexter or Wardy I can.
“I just want to play in the team – wherever you put me I’ll give it my all.”
