Forest 1-1 PNE
North End came up against the hardest opponents so far this season.
The lads battled right to the end, earning a score draw. Jason
Dodwell got the goal for Preston, with Lewis unfortunately scoring
an own goal
would have settled for a draw before the match so I have got
to be happy that we managed to achieve our aim against one of
the best sides we have played this season. But that statement
is tinged with a little sadness as i thought we did enough especially
in the last 20 min’s to take all three points!
if I sound a bit like Billy Davis but like him I feel a sense
of frustration that we didn't managed to get the victory our
play deserved. But if you don't take your chances you don't win
matches and we certainly had enough chances to win this game.
saying that the Forest striker header that hit the underside
of the bar did cross the line so we can count ourselves lucky
on that score but saying that our goal scored by Allan was not
yes it was frustrating to see us miss some good chances near
the end but from a manager’s point of view and considering
the amount of people we had out I have got to be satisfied with
a point. I also thought the quality of our football at times
was first class.
played some great stuff and we are always looking to "pass" our
way out of trouble and that’s great to see. Our first touch
is getting better as well and I think we are improving all the
time and that’s great and the team sprit is really good
at the moment so all in all I have to be satisfied with our days
Goal scorer and man of the match for Preston was Jason Dodwell.
