Fantastic Forest support

13 August 2017

Goalscorer Daryl Murphy praised the fantastic support shown by the Nottingham Forest fans as The Reds came away with a 4-3 win against Brentford.

A sold-out away end witnessed Forest win on the road in their first away match of the season at Griffin Park and Murphy felt the performance was a lot better than the opening weekend against Millwall.

He said: “The fans were brilliant from start to finish. It was a great atmosphere and the main thing was the three points. We wanted to score more as we had the chances to.

“In the last couple of games, we hadn’t played particularly well and the manager made that clear. But we are still winning games and there is a lot more to come from us as a team and individuals.

“It was a lot better today. I don’t think I have ever come here and had an easy game and they tend to score late goals, which they did today, but we held on for the three points.”

Murphy was delighted to get off the mark for Forest following his summer move from Newcastle United, tapping home from close range after Tendayi Darikwa’s shot hit the post.

“It is important to get off the mark as soon as you can,” he said. “I have enough experience now to not let it bother me but hopefully now I can kick on.

“I would rather one of those goals. It is about being in the right position at the right time. They say you can’t teach it but I will take those all day long.”
