Hughton on Wycombe win

7 November 2020

Nottingham Forest manager Chris Hughton was pleased with his side’s performance in the 2-0 victory over Wycombe Wanderers.

Lyle Taylor scored in each half to secure the points, with Hughton pleased with the attacking and defensive play from his team.

Speaking after the match, he said: “It is a good win. It was a tough game and if there is anybody who doesn’t know this league, all you have to do is look at the results today and last week.

“They are a team that came up that play a very direct style but they are effective in the way they do it. They came into this game having got some good results and I think it showed today.

“We were up against a really tough team, we had to work hard and defend well and wait for those good opportunities.

“We are delighted in the end as you can’t underestimate the quality of the opposition and how hard you are having to work to get results.

“The only disappointing thing is that at 2-0 up, the game is stretched and they are going for it and I thought we had two or three good opportunities to increase that lead.

“Their keeper made a great save from Harry Arter and we got in a couple of positions that we could have made more of. But overall, I am delighted with the performance.”

Hughton paired Taylor and Miguel Guerrero as a strike partnership and he was pleased with the way they worked together and are growing into their positions.

He said: “I’m probably more pleased for Guerrero. Lyle is someone who we know and has played games, but Guerrero we don’t know so much about and he is still feeling his way in.

“It was the right time to play him and what we have in both of them is two players who haven’t played a lot of 90 minutes over the last few months.

“There is more to come from them and that is a plus, particularly when we have been looking for a bit more as a team offensively.”
