Georgia Hewitt netted her first league goal for Nottingham Forest in over two years on Sunday afternoon as she helped the side pick up a point in their opening day fixture away to West Bromwich Albion.
Speaking after the game Hewitt shared her delight at getting her name on the scoresheet. She said: “I was really happy to get on the scoresheet and contribute to the game.
“The last time I scored in the league was two years on my debut for Forest.
“So, it’s great to add to that and hopefully going forward I’ll have the opportunity to add some more goals this season.”
The Reds were held to a 2-2 draw as West Brom netted a late penalty to secure a point. But Hewitt explains the side were left ‘disappointed’ to return home with only the draw.
“We are disappointed not to bring the three points home but at the end of the day it wasn’t a loss,” she said.
“We still got a crucial point which is a massive positive.
“There’s things we know we need to work on and take forward into the game against Derby next Sunday.”
Forest’s face East Midlands rivals Derby County next as they return home for their first league game of the season at Eastwood Community Football Club. The Ewe Rams also picked up a draw in their first game of the season and Hewitt looks ahead to the tie.
The full-back said: “Going into the game against Derby next week with a point under our belt from the first game is a big positive.
“It would make it worse heading into it with a loss so we have to look on the good side of that.
“Derby also picked up a point from their first game so we know the game will be very even and tough but we’re up for it.”
