Big victory delights Lamouchi

27 November 2019

Nottingham Forest head coach Sabri Lamouchi was delighted with his squad as they secured a brilliant 4-0 win against QPR.

Tobias Figueiredo, Lewis Grabban, Joao Carvalho and Alfa Semedo were all on the scoresheet as Forest picked up a big win in the capital, much to the delight of the gaffer.

Speaking after the game, he said: “The lads respected the plan, we started the game very well but after 30 minutes we defended so close to our own box.

“We made some correction on the break and we scored. When you score first, it gives you confidence. We played a great game and, of course, with one player more it makes it difficult for them.

“I have to congratulate the players as they respected the opponent, they respected the game and they tried to score the second, the third and fortunately we got four. It is the first time we have scored four this season and one more clean sheet.

“We have had two games away after Bristol and tonight, with two clean sheets and four points but we have to keep working and keep going.”

Carvalho and Semedo both came off the bench to score goals late on in the game and the attitude of the whole squad is something that Lamouchi is pleased with.

He said: “It is important to score but more so to have a good attitude from the bench and be positive. I have a fantastic group, they all want to play and I have more options now so it is good.

“I want that from them. They are doing a fantastic job and they deserved this result, like they deserved it in Bristol three days ago and now we need to focus.

“Cardiff will be another tough game, completely different from tonight but with the full support of The City Ground we want to take maximum points.

“Our support is just amazing, not just tonight but every game from the beginning. I am so surprised week after week, game after game and we want them to keep going.”
