Highlights and reaction from CCS as City beat Forest

Last updated : 31 January 2022 By Michael Morris

Steve Morison: "It's huge. We know we need to win games of football, especially with the teams around us losing over the weekend, and what an excellent job they did. We set them up in a game plan and we brought new players in because the players we already have need help. I thought, to a man, they were outstanding.


"We have been heavily reliant this year on players from the academy and younger players who have had good moments this year. The reality is that they need help and we need players to come in to help them to allow them to flourish. Isaak Davies scored the winning goal in the end, but my question is would he have been able to do that if the other boys hadn't have put in that shift beforehand?

Steve Cooper: "We have only got ourselves to blame for not winning today. I think the goals were poor ones - we turned it over too easily on both occasions - and, technically, we were not at the level to create and score. For all of the decent areas we got in and for all of the ball that we had, we just didn't create enough.

"In the end, if you want to create and score chances, you have to show a bit of quality, particularly in the way I want the team to play. We're not going to just boot it in the box, we want to create 'proper' chances, but to do that, we need to be technically better than what we were today."
