Lolley delighted with set piece success

31 March 2019

Joe Lolley felt that Nottingham Forest's strength from set pieces was crucial as they came from behind to defeat Swansea City yesterday.

The winger delivered two fine corners into the box to set up both goals from Daryl Murphy and Molla Wague as The Reds secured a vital three points at The City Ground.

Speaking after the game, he said: "It was always important just to get the win and keep ourselves in the mix. It was a tough game; we knew Swansea like to pass the ball, try and keep it but we also knew that they didn't defend set pieces the best and there was a gap there for us to exploit, and we did that.

"We could have gone under at 1-0 but we kept fighting. After the goal, it almost perked us up a bit and we managed to fight back. Then by the end, we obviously hung on at the end, but after the equaliser we got to grips with it and went on to win it.

"Set pieces are something we have concentrated on because it is such a big part of the game. We have got a few big lads; Murph has come on and Molla has got three goals now so he is prolific!

"It is something we have worked on and we know that if we put the ball in the area we will have people to attack the ball. In my first year here I don't think we scored from a set piece so it is important and I am glad we have managed to turn that around."
