Nottingham Forest winger Sammy Ameobi was delighted to pick up a massive three points against Cardiff City last night.
A second-half strike from Tiago Silva secured a vital victory, a result which was fully deserved following a fine team performance.
Speaking after the game, Ameobi said: “Absolutely, we are delighted. We know how dangerous a team Cardiff can be so the way we set up was spot on and it was a great finish from Tiago.
“We have played some terrific games but those three points were coming and it was good to get back on the right foot.
“We knew that three points was what we wanted if we are to stay in the play-off race and go for promotion. Everyone was focused and we are glad to get the result in the end.”
The victory saw Forest climb up to third in the table but Ameobi said the squad aren’t taking any notice of positions or other results, just focusing on each game at a time.
He said: “We just have to take it one game at a time. One game isn’t going to get us there. We just have to keep performing each week and it is the most consistent team that will do it. We go to Middlesbrough on Monday night and hopefully we can get a result.
“We are a confident team, we believe in our ability. We can be very solid defensively and we have the quality to hurt teams. Knowing that, we can go into games thinking we can get three points rather than just hang on to results, we have that in the team.”
