Huddersfield survived a relentless spell of pressure as they produced one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. Duane Holmes scored the only goal of the game for the visitors which came totally against the run of play. Forest missed a number of chances and was thwarted by Lee Nicholls with a string of saves. They ended up with nothing in a game that they should have won comfortably.
Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper: “It is disappointing, isn’t it? We have not won because we conceded the kind of goal that we talked a lot about not conceding. We talked a lot about their low crosses into the box and the danger they posed. They have scored a lot of goals in that way. So after going through that thoroughly, it is disappointing to concede in that way.”
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “We had to suffer in order to get three points. As a coach, I appreciate a lot the effort the players put in, to get the three points. At the same time, I would like to see us claim three points while suffering less during the 90 minutes. In some moments, we created very good opportunities. There was a little luck involved. We should not have conceded the chances we did during the game. But it is also true that, at the start of the second half, we had a good chance of our own to score a second and take control of the game. We conceded chances in situations that we can control better.”
