Missed chances cost us

14 April 2019

Nottingham Forest defender Jack Robinson felt that missed chances proved costly for The Reds in their defeat against Blackburn.

Forest missed a host of opportunities which ultimately proved decisive in the 2-1 reverse at The City Ground yesterday.

Speaking after the game, he said: "It was a poor result in the end. We have had so many chances in the game to take it to them and we haven't taken them. That has been our Achilles heel for the past four or five weeks, we just aren't taking our chances.

"We said it on Tuesday and it has cost us again. It has cost us the three points; we had more than enough chances to see the game off but we haven't taken them.

"I don't know what it is down to, maybe just not concentrating in the final third. We aren't getting shots on target or working the keeper, that is the worst thing about it. I think it is just about concentration from the lads to try and get the shots on target and get some opportunities."

The defeat made it three in a row for The Reds and Robinson is determined to halt the slide and end the season positively.

He said: "It is something that we need to learn from and quickly to rectify it as you don't want to take this into the end of the season as it will then lead into next season.

"It is massive to take confidence into next season then you can build in the summer and go again next year. It is something that we have spoken about, that we don't want to end on a poor run of games so we will rectify that as soon as possible."
