Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman has praised his player’s performances and told them to maintain belief after their 1-1 draw at Huddersfield Town, reports the Nottingham Post.
The East-Midlands side traveled to Huddersfield hopeful of winning their third away game in a row as their form improves on the back of four deadline day signings.
However, a late Emyr Huws goal cancelled out a Ryan Mendes strike in a game that Forest thought they had won.
The draw will surely come as a disappointment for Forest fans despite the fact that Freedman remains keen to praise the way his players are improving with each game.
And whilst the Scotsman continues to praise his team, he believes that Forest aren’t getting the points that they deserve.
Speaking after last nights game, he commented: “At this moment, we are not getting the points we deserve from our performances. I am pleased with the effort, the players are getting behind each other as a group.
“We are talking about fine margins, when you look at hitting the post and not scoring penalties.
“But as a coach I feel as though we are on the right track. We just aren’t getting the points that our performances deserve. As long as we continue what we are doing, we will get the points we deserve in the long run.
“When you look at our performances, they are very good right now and we need to keep it up.
“We take a very well deserved point from this [Huddersfield]. Our performance was fantastic and we had enough opportunities to have won the game.
Confident that his side can continue to pick up the points they need for a play-off push this season, Freedman will be hoping that good performances can transfer into more frequent wins away from home and at the City Ground.
And fans will be sharing that belief as an improved squad provides some well-needed optimism among the fans on Trent Side.
