On the front foot

Nottingham Forest midfielder Adlene Guedioura was happy that The Reds’ attacking play was rewarded with three goals in the victory over Bolton Wanderers last night.

A Lewis Grabban brace and a goal from Joe Lolley ensured the 3-0 win at the University of Bolton Stadium, and Guedioura felt that going out on the front foot gave Forest the best chance of victory.

Speaking after the game, he said: "It was important to come here, be ambitious and to try to win the game and this is what we did and we are happy with that.

"In the first half, we played well in the first 20 minutes. We got a little bit complacent and made it hard for ourselves, then in the second half we tried to push and when we scored the second goal it was the end of the game and tried to score more if we could. We did and we are happy with that."

Guedioura had praise for both Lolley and Grabban for their goalscoring and the Algerian hopes that they can both keep up their fine form.

He said: "It was a wonderful strike by Joe and he is on fire at the moment. I am happy with that and we are all happy with that and we hope that he can continue.

"Lewis is the same and scoring for a striker is the best thing to have. He is confident and I hope that he can keep scoring for us.

"It was good for Lewis to score the second penalty, I think he needs the first one to score the second! But seriously, is not easy to take a penalty and he had a second chance to do it and he scored; he had to be strong mentally."
