Dougie Freedman believes his Nottingham Forest side deserved their win over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday lunchtime.Forest fought back from a goal down to pick up all three points in the Sky Bet Championship, ending a dismal run of form on the road.
Prior to their victory at Loftus Road, Freedman's men hadn't triumphed on their travels since late February, but the Scot says they were worth their win.
“I think we deserved to win the match – we were the better side,” Freedman told nottinghamforest.co.uk.
QPR led through a Charlie Austin goal, but the tide changed when goalkeeper Robert Green was dismissed for a foul on Forest debutant Chris O'Grady.
Henri Lansbury converted the resulting penalty and another debutant, Nelson Oliveira, fired the winner shortly after to give Freedman's side their second success of the campaign.
“I just felt we showed that desire and determination to succeed right from the off. We controlled the match with some lovely passing sequences through midfield.”
