Lamouchi upbeat after Reading draw

22 January 2020

Nottingham Forest head coach Sabri Lamouchi was upbeat following the 1-1 draw against Reading this evening.

Despite being pegged back late on by The Royals for the second time in two weeks, Lamouchi was pleased with his side’s performance and their chances of success this season.

Speaking after the game, he said: “It was a different game, I am proud of the way we played and controlled the game. We did the hardest thing, to score.

“I felt the stadium was disappointed, the dressing room was disappointed and the players were disappointed, but we have 18 games to play. The Championship is so tough, so long, so difficult so it is a very good point against a very good team, a very organised team.

“They created a lot of problems and didn’t give us too much space. We scored at a good time but they scored at the wrong time for us. My team deserved the victory today because we controlled the game, we tried more but unfortunately it was not enough.

“We have to adapt, keep going and work. We have a lot of games to play so it is a good point. Here at The City Ground, it was the best performance from the last three games.

“Sunday I was happy with the result and not the performance, but tonight I am happy with the performance and not the result. I must be the only one positive about the fans, about the dressing room, they cannot give up. This year, why not? This year, we need to fight in each game like it is the last one.”
