Nottingham Forest forward Albert Adomah was pleased to get his first run-out in a red shirt in the 3-0 victory against Atromitos last night.
The Reds came out on top thanks to goals by Sammy Ameobi, Michael Dawson and Joe Lolley and Adomah felt it was a good pre-season challenge for them.
He said: “It was a good test for us, they are a top four team in Greece and I think we gave them a good game. To come out on top with three goals was good and a good test for us for pre-season.
“Beating a European side is good; it gives us the confidence and hopefully the boost to take on Olympiacos which is the next game, another big test for us so we look forward to it.
“In the first half we had a few younger players and I think they all did well and impressed the gaffer. When you are young it always good to show what you can produce, especially with a new manager as it is a clean slate for everyone and if they can keep it up then I’m sure he will keep on selecting them.”
Adomah joined The Reds last week and is adjusting to his new surroundings but feels that his appearance off the bench can only help him sharpen up ahead of the new campaign.
“So far, so good,” he said. “I have only had three days of training so to get 20 minutes was good in a red shirt. Hopefully there is more to come in pre-season.
“I had done nothing for six weeks, then this week I have met the team and started training. I got a game, 20 minutes which is good for my fitness levels as the more games I get, the fitter I will get.”
