Nottingham Forest midfielder Joe Lolley was delighted to be the match-winner in The Reds' 1-0 victory over Brentford at Griffin Park.

Lolley's eighth goal of the season was enough to see Forest claim an outstanding three points in West London and the 27-year-old admitted he was thrilled with this victory in particular.

Speaking after the game, he said: "This is one of the toughest places to go, they've won six in a row at home in the league and they always play on the front foot but we came here with a game-plan to limit them. I think we controlled the game out of possession and we had chances on the break as well so it's a great three points.

"It was all about patience, discipline and sticking to the game-plan. The manager has been brilliant again because he has come up with a gameplan that pushed me slightly more forward next to Grabbs and it worked. I think we fully deserved the win in the end.

"I'm comfortable playing anywhere on the pitch and hopefully the manager trusts to go out and do a job for the team. I just tried to work as hard as possible and stop Norgaard, who is one of the their best players, from getting on the ball and creating chances for them and I thought I did that.

"I've scored a lot of good goals over the years so sometimes it's nice to score some scrappy one. At times when you're working hard, you don't always get the rewards to show for it so it was nice to see it go in and I've got four goals in four starts now so hopefully I'm hitting a bit of form."
