We could have nicked it

Jack Colback believes Nottingham Forest could have snatched all three points at Carrow Road last night had they taken their chances.

The Reds had some good opportunities during the game but ultimately had to settle for a point against Norwich.

Speaking after the game, he said: "It is a point at a tough place to come but I think we should have nicked it. Overall, I think we had the better chances, five or six clear ones which you have got to take.

"They had a lot of the ball but didn't really hurt us too much. I am a bit disappointed that we didn't nick it but a point is maybe a fair result.

"We look organised and solid. We have lost too many games this season and not drawn enough; the manager said in the dressing room after that if you can't win the game then you make sure you don't lose it and we have done that."

Ben Brereton had a few good chances to break the deadlock and Colback knows that the teenager will need to keep on learning and develop his game.

"Ben is frustrated but he is a young lad and he will learn from nights like tonight," he added. "He has had two or three really good chances but that is the way it goes sometimes. He will keep working hard, he is a good lad and hopefully he can put them away on Sunday.

"We look really dangerous going forward. The game plan was to get about them as much as we could and if we needed to sit in and defend a bit deeper then we could and we looked dangerous on the counter attack.

"We had the best chances of the game and in another game we might have nicked it."
