Nottingham Forest forward Lyle Taylor was pleased to get the job done against a tough Wycombe Wanderers side on Saturday afternoon.
The frontman, who scored either side of half-time to secure a 2-0 victory at The City Ground, was happy to get the three points against a difficult side to come up against and now aims to recharge the batteries during the international break.
Speaking after the game, he said: “It was a very good win, they are a very difficult team to play against. The amount of energy they have and the way they play the game, it is difficult and you have got to be on your job for 95 minutes.
“We are very pleased and it is now time to put the feet up and rest the legs because it has been a long month.
“The break will be massive, everyone is playing Saturday-Tuesday or Saturday-Wednesday, whatever it might be. Everybody is putting the miles on the clock so we have to be ready, the whole squad has to be ready to step in when it’s time to step in and step out when it’s time to support the boys and put your feet up.
“That is what we have here and we are fortunate to have a squad the size we have and a squad with the quality we have. It is going to be a tough run from now until the New Year. I think we have a ridiculous number of games in December, and that involves Christmas too so it is going to be mental.”
Taylor was paired with Miguel Guerrero in The Reds’ attack, a partnership that he enjoyed playing in and hopes there is even more to come from Forest’s attacking arsenal.
He said: “Miguel is a very good footballer, he is a very good foil. He isn’t the only one, Luke Freeman, Joe Lolley, we have got an abundance of attacking talent. It is about making that talent click and that is what the gaffer’s job has been.
“We were conceding a couple of goals, one goal here and one goal there. We seem quite solid and now we need to carry on working on that little bit of fluidity going forward. Once we have that, as you saw today, you will see more results like this.
“It is up to us to make it work, whichever four or five players might be playing. It is about hard work on the training field in the little time we have and making it work on a matchday.”
