Nottingham Forest forward Lewis Grabban was pleased that The Reds returned to winning ways with victory at Hull on Boxing Day.
The frontman scored his 11th and 12th goals of the season to clinch a much-needed victory at the KCOM Stadium.
Speaking after the game, he said: “It is big. It was a sticky patch we were in but we kept calm and hopefully there won’t be any more and we can push on. We want to try and be more consistent but every team in the Championship is going to go through that.
“The good thing is that we are still in touch with the top boys after our sticky patch so it is good.
“It was a good win and pleasing to get back to winning ways. It is nice personally to get a couple of goals but the main thing was to get the win after not winning for a while and getting some points on the board.”
Forest were awarded their first penalty of the season in the first half, a spot kick which Grabban calmly converted, before he sealed the points with a fine goal late on.
“We have been unfairly done by with some of the referees over the course of the season, we probably should have had three or four penalties at least, but it was nice to get one today,” he added.
“The second was nice build-up play and it was good to seal the game at that point which we needed. With them trying to push for an equaliser, we got them on the break with that chance and we took it.
“We haven’t had too many clear-cut chances in recent weeks, it has been a bit frustrating, but today I was able to get one and take it so I am happy and it has helped us win.”
