Many people will see the Nottingham Forest game as two points dropped, others will see it as one point gained. I guess we will have to wait until the end of the season to fully judge that but I’m leaning towards the latter.
But why after George Puscas and Lucas Joao’s missed opportunities and Andy Yiadom hitting the post? Well, I think we would have lost that game in previous seasons and at a time in the campaign when every point makes a difference, Yakou Meite’s strike was a massive relief and with that, our unbeaten run continues.
If we manage to win our two remaining games before the break, I think we will all forget about last weekend. And even though we were five points clear of seventh place on Saturday evening, this is a match we need to win to ease nerves in the camp.
The return of Meite was a massive boost for the Royals and gave us a solid option off the bench, which proved to be crucial in the end. We were also hoping to see Ovie Ejaria and Andy Rinomhota return after their injuries too but did not appear on the bench, with Felipe Araruna seemingly suffering another setback and John Swift still out for a while.
Lewis Gibson did return to the bench though on Saturday alongside Meite after playing for the U23s on Friday. The Everton loanee is likely to be available for selection again tonight.
