We were pretty crap and rode our luck a fair few times but a win is a win.

Two wins in two, weren't the better side in either of them really, but hey technically speaking we've fucked them, so, YES.

Thank fuck for the 3 points.

Not a great display but take the win. Kodjia brings so much positivity and Adomah played a very good game. Burton and Bolton now. 6 points is a must

I can't glean much confidence in us as a team, and no doubt Bruce will be laughing at all the hysterical fans shortly but I'm very grateful for the points.

Clearly better today barring the 20mins after half.

Adomah and Kodjia were great today. Hourihane's free kick was a beauty, and thank god for it. Defense looked a little unorganized at times but plenty of em were willing to throw their bodies in front of balls. I think that 11 could do well in this league.

On that note, Odomah was really poor.

We would have drew that last season so maybe our lucks changing. Good to get the win but still not confident of going up. Whelan and Elmo need to be fucked off whelen especially he was forests best player.

Funny game

Never great and obviously a bit nervous on occasion

But should have been at least 2-0 up at half time

Then could have been 3-1 down

We need to be more confident passing the ball

But there's no question we're starting to look much more dangerous when we attack

36% possession, if we don't learn to to hold onto the ball better we are going to struggle to win consistently, a better side than Forest would have made us pay today. Saving grace for Bruce is there isn't much quality down here to take advantage of the fact we're not really a very good side, we just have very good individuals who keep saving us.

We have to see this as a big result in our season.  And of course holding on to win when we didn't last season.
