Sean O’Driscoll was a happy man after the 0-0 draw at home to Middlesbrough on Tuesday night and even happier to put the painful memory of Saturdays’ 4-1 thumping to Millwall behind him.

The Reds’ did well to put an end to ‘Boro’s run of 6 away wins on the bounce and at the same time, went some way to rectifying the 4-1 defeat to Millwall at the weekend.

It was a much improved display from Forest, who saw chances from Sharp and Reid go begging, in a game the Forest manager thought they could have won.

O’Driscoll told the official site. “I think we did extremely well today. I`m pleased with the way we tried to move the ball and how we played in general. Tactically we did really well, we just need to turn draws into wins, we all know that. There were quite a few half-chances which we should have done better with. Andy Reid should have scored, Billy hit the post and there were a couple of headers in the first half. We had the chances to win it.”

Forest face a tough trip to Leicester at the weekend and O’Driscoll said that along with ‘Boro, the Foxes are the best side he’s seen in the Championship so far this season. The draw sees Forest slip down the table to 11th, but still remain just 2 points away from a Playoff spot.
