Lewis on grabbing his first goal

20 September 2018

Lewis Grabban was delighted to get his first goal for the club as Nottingham Forest defeated Sheffield Wednesday last night.

The forward struck just before half-time to put Forest in front before Joao Carvalho also scored his first in the Garibaldi.

Speaking after the game, Grabban said: "It means a lot. It can get a bit frustrating but it is still early doors. It is my fifth start this season, we are still gelling but I am happy to get on the scoresheet.

"It didn't weigh on my mind. If I was getting 10 or 15 chances a game then I would be bothered about it, but I think the team is gelling, we created a lot more chances and Joao was able to get a goal and so was I.

"The ball was put in with pace, balls in the box like that give you a chance to score and I got on the end of it."

Grabban felt the overall performance was good from the team and that they built on the positive display at Swansea at the weekend.

He said: "I thought it was a good performance and we progressed from the game at the weekend. We stepped it up a gear against Sheffield Wednesday and I thought it was good.

"There is still levels that we can rise to but as a whole I think it was good and the most important thing is that we got the three points.

"We learned a couple of things at Brentford, as we are going to do over the season, but I think today we put a lot of good things together and that enabled us to win.

"There are goals and assists in this side and today we showed that we can battle hard. I don't know the amount of tackles and interceptions we put in tonight, but the team is capable of doing a lot of things. We just need to put it together and grow as the season goes on and then we will be hard to stop."
