Building blocks

Nottingham Forest’s Liam Bridcutt says the point at Preston was well earned but it could have been all three at Deepdale.

Ben Brereton opened the scoring before North End equalised and the midfielder wants The Reds to build on the result over the next couple of games.

Speaking after the game, he said: "For us it was disappointing really. We have set our standards so high this season that a point feels like a loss. But if you are looking at their form at the minute, and us being away from home, we've have come and got a good point.

"A point is a point, it is on the board and we can go on and build on that now. We are looking forward to the next couple of games and hopefully we can get a few more points and a few more wins."

Forest were defensively solid throughout the game and Bridcutt credits the work the team have been doing on the training pitch to improve on that side of their game.

He said: "Defensively the gaffer has done some great work with us in the last couple of weeks, in terms of us being a bit more solid. With the style of football we play, we are going to leave ourselves open at times.

"It is being comfortable without the ball at times as we are a team that likes to be in possession. We are going to have to deal with times when we don't have the ball and make sure that we are comfortable with that."
