Nottingham Forest boss Dougie Freedman delighted with victory at Queens Park Rangers

14 September 2015

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

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.

“First half, we played some fantastic stuff and shaded it. QPR came into it in the second half and gave it a good go but I thought we stood up.

“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.”
