Gain Luck and Kamil Grosicki – Every Word Chris Hughton Said After Nottingham Forest Beat Blackburn


Nottingham Forest claimed their first win of the season at the Blackburn Rovers in Chris Hughton’s opener at the helm. Then the victorious manager spoke to the press about the 1-0 victory. Here’s every word he said at his official press conference, as he addressed Forest’s candidacy to sign Kamil Grosicki on a one-season loan from West Bromwich Albion.

What do you hope this win does for the players?

“I hope it gives the players confidence, especially in the way of playing when you score so late.

“It gives the team an incredible boost. In this division, the matches come so fast.

“We almost have the feeling of looking to Tuesday and Rotherham. I hope we can incorporate that good feeling into this game.

“They worked really hard. As a manager, if you lose because someone scores a worldie, you can put your hands up and say the team gave their all.

“It was the case today.

“We’ve all been through these rough times, so sometimes when you play that way it’s even more enjoyable.

“We came into a team that is really in good shape at home and during the match periods they showed why they were in good shape.

“The nice part is that we got stronger as the game progressed.

“We wanted to be strong but we also have chances. “

Did you see this goal coming?

“Did I see the goal coming?” Probably not.

“The game looked like a 0-0 draw.

“We finished strong, which was good.

“You can either watch your team, see which one wants to win this game and the other doesn’t want to lose.

“Where we are, you probably want to be the team that doesn’t want to lose, so I’m very happy. “

You were lucky with the goal but Joe Lolley hit it with a goal

“He has that kind of ability, especially when he comes in and can get some good power.

“Sammy Ameobi also made a very good effort. If you’re the type of player who takes those shots, there will always be a percentage where you have that bit of luck with a deflection or he hits someone for a tap. “

Did you win this chance?

“If Blackburn scores early it’s a different game. The longer you stay in the game, it’s about that bit of a quality to score a goal.

“The feeling is always that if you score that backhanded goal, you won it. We got stronger in the game.

“Blackburn is in very good shape. Tony did a good job and it’s a good win for us. “

How did you feel to be back in the canoe after more than a year?

“The good times are on the training ground, watching the players develop and of course winning games.

“You’ll win a percentage of games, you just hope it’s higher than lower.

“These are good times. As a manager who has been around for a while, I’m really happy for the players.

“They weren’t winning so they will feel it. I hope that as a team they can move forward. “

What’s the latest with Kamil Grosicki?

“What I have been informed of is that the paperwork has entered. They are reviewing it right now.

“As a manager and a club, we hope this will be successful. “
