Manager Rob Edwards has said he saw plenty of encouraging signs in our defeat to Nottingham Forest in the first round of the Capital One Cup last night.

A single goal from the Championship level outfit was enough to separate the sides at full time, but speaking to the Official Site Edwards was pretty positive because the performance for him was far improved to our league opener.

‘I enjoyed the game more than I enjoyed Saturday’s but I’m more disappointed which is the crazy world of football management. I’m disappointed because I thought we had a chance.’

Edwards goes on to say that they had good ball possession but we’d figured out what they were going to try and do and we were coping with that well and he thought that would give us the advantage in getting a goal ourselves but unfortunately that didn’t materialise.

‘With the Forest lad being sent off we had lots of the ball and a couple of chances and half chances. The players got themselves going, the team looked together and it was an encouraging night. We lost and I don’t like losing and the players are frustrated, but we’ve got lots of football ahead.’

The biggest plus for the gaffer was that he commented he didn’t feel we looked as nervous as we did last Saturday, and losing that fear, the players really did start to show what they could do and their strengths as they were freer and that’s exactly how he wants to see us continue.
