Nottingham Forest manager Aitor Karanka has lauded his side’s performance in the win against Leeds United in the last match. The hosts beat the Whites by 4-2 in a hard-fought contest after Leeds were reduced to 10 men in the Championship.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Karanka said, “It was really good because the crowd has enjoyed it, the players have done their best so it was the perfect game.”
He added, “It was a very good performance, especially when you are playing against a top of the table team. When you are winning against the opponent with 10 men, then they come back and we have the energy to come back again in the fourth game in 10 or 12 days so I can’t say anything better to the players.”
Karanka concluded, “I was a little bit concerned after their second goal but the reaction was amazing. In the same way that we weren’t ourselves last Saturday in the first half, the spirit and the work they put on the pitch has been amazing.”
