Grabban on Millwall draw

7 December 2019

Lewis Grabban felt it was two points dropped as Nottingham Forest were pegged back late on against Millwall.

The forward came off the bench to turn the game around, scoring twice before Millwall’s late equaliser ensured a share of the spoils.

“It was good for myself personally but we were disappointed as a team,” he said. “We worked hard to get back into the game and get the advantage then we don’t follow it up on the shot. We are more disappointed that it is two points dropped.

“It was good to score and come on and make an impact. I think it gave us a bit more belief and we were able to perform better in the second half as the first half we weren’t at our best. We just have to do better in the next game.

“Every time I come here, I think it is the fans way of showing me affection by giving me a bit of stick. I score and give them a bit of stick back so I’m sure they enjoy it.”

Grabban said that both goals were instinctive as he scored within 55 seconds of coming off the bench and again two minutes from time.

He said: “When the ball goes over long, I try and spin back round to anticipate the ball coming back in and it normally is only the forward who does that. The defenders tend to ball watch and I am adjusting to the space.

“Woz [Joe Worrall] did well to get the ball back in for the first goal and similarly, moving off the ball when Sammy got it in for the second one.

“It is probably instinct, you have to think where the ball is going to be dropping and adjust your body to put the ball in the net.”
