Great to watch

28 August 2016

Nottingham Forest midfielder Chris Cohen says he can't remember a time where The Reds have been such a strong attacking force after the 3-1 victory over Leeds United yesterday.

Philippe Montanier's men recorded their third straight home win thanks to goals from Pajtim Kasami, Damien Perquis and Oliver Burke and Cohen says it was also crucial that Forest tightened things up at the back.

Speaking after the game he said: "It was obviously a great win and it felt a lot more solid than last week. First half I thought we shaded it with the chances we created and then after the break we sat in with a solid shape and it took a wonder strike to beat Hendo.

"We've been trying to find that balance of being threatening at one end and stopping goals going in at the other. To have scored 11 goals in the first three games at The City Ground is great and it's entertaining for the supporters.

"It's my tenth season at the club and I can't remember a time where I was so confident going into games that we're going to score goals. Even if we concede now we know we can still hit back and go on to win the game."

Forest face a number of challenging fixtures next month including trips to Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday in the league but Cohen insists the squad are just relishing their fine start to campaign.

He said: "We're all guilty of trying to predict the future but at the moment we're enjoying playing under the manager and we're pleased for him that he's had a good start to the season. It's an exciting time to be at the club right now.

"We've got some tough away games coming up in September and they'll show exactly where we're at. We've had two tricky away games so far and not picked up any points so we know we have to improve in that area."
