Lamouchi: We are frustrated and disappointed

10 December 2019

Sabri Lamouchi felt it was two points dropped for Nottingham Forest as they were held to a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough.

Ryan Yates had put Forest in front before Paddy McNair’s late penalty levelled it up, and Lamouchi wants to see his side show more character at home to go in search of the victory.

Speaking after the game, he said: “We are frustrated and disappointed, of course, because I felt we controlled the game until the goal. We played well in the first half, we created a lot but we didn’t score.

“We played not so good in the second half but we scored, and it was important to make the difference and to score, but after the goal we stopped playing and gave them the possibility to take the ball, play more direct and to push us back.

“We need more character, especially at home, as the game was in our hands.

“We have won many games with less opportunities, so it is not about that. We need to find the solution, to keep going and be positive. I am upset, like the players, because tonight we lost two points.

“When we scored, we went back 20 yards and were, maybe, afraid to win. I don’t know, but we must play to win and score the second goal. If we don’t score the second goal, don’t give them anything.

“We have a lot of regret, the last minute at Millwall and again tonight, it is a lot of points and at the end it is the details.”
