'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Oppositions View - O'Driscoll - Forest.



Forest boss Sean O'Driscoll was happy to see his side come from two goals down to snatch a point at the City Ground on Saturday.

Birmingham had the breakthrough on 69 minutes when Hayden Mullins smashed the ball home then Nathan Redmond looked to have put Blues on the way to three points when he netted the second just a minute later.

But Forest hit back when Cox brilliantly lobbed the ball beyond the reach of Jack Butland, then with just five minutes left on the clock Blues failed to clear a ball in the box and it fell for Harding to hammer it home.

O'Driscoll told the Nottingham Evening Post: 'I didn't think we deserved to be 2-0 down but you have to give credit to Birmingham. They came with a game plan.

'But it was a good response from us to the situation we found ourselves in. The three substitutes did very well but if you are going to do well in this division you need 16, 17 or 18 players.

'It was important to get the first goal and Simon Cox came up with it. He got a knock on international duty and we thought he might be out for six to eight weeks but there was no break and he was desperately keen to play.

'He made a great run but it was a superb pass to him as well. After that we got momentum, the crowd responded brilliantly and if there had been another five minutes we could have won it.'
