Harrison Reed was delighted to score his first Fulham goal and seal the Whites’ first away win of the season at Nottingham Forest last night.
The tigerish midfielder arrived late at the back post to turn home a Bobby Decordova-Reid cross to make it 3-1 – completing a spell of three Fulham goals in six minutes as Marco Silva’s side roared back from being a goal down early on. The Whites held on for the three points despite Lewis O’Brien setting a grandstand finale and Reed told FFCTV after the final whistle that he was happy to have finally found the net after 108 appearances for the club.
I’ve had a lot of stick about it, to be fair – both inside and outside the dressing room! I’ve been waiting. I’ve been working hard, trying to get in the right spaces. I just knew one was going to fall to him at the right time and luckily that there was tonight and it obviously got us the three points, so it is massive. I think Kebano can stop talking to me a little bit, I don’t think he’s scored a Prem goal yet! I need to chip in with goals and assists, I’m playing slightly more advanced, I need to do my work on and off the ball.
It made it even better to celebrate in front of the away fans. They are massive every game. They’ve been amazing this season – every single game we’ve spoken about how they impact us. They spurred us on, kicking towards them in the second half. We had a few words at half time. We started fast and we’ve scored three goals in six minutes to effectively win the game. To get [Tosin’s] goal so early in the second half was massive.
