Ben Osborn said Nottingham Forest’s second-half performance wasn’t good enough as they lost 3-0 to Sheffield Wednesday on Boxing Day.
The Reds missed a hatful of chances inside the first half but found themselves 2-0 down at the break and Osborn knows that they need to be more clinical.
Speaking after the game, he said: "In the first half I thought we played quite well but we went in 2-0 having missed some good chances, myself included. We are gutted about the result.
"They have scored a wonder goal and then we dominated the play, playing some good stuff. I remember Barrie having a good chance, then me the same; he has put it on a plate for me. I have just got to take those kind of chances.
"It is not ideal being 2-0 down and then in the second half we weren't good enough. We huffed and puffed but we didn't have any real cutting edge and didn't create enough.
"I think we maybe panicked a bit in the second half, rose to the crowd noise and tried to force it a bit when we should have been patient."
