Davies - We Didn't Deserve Anything

Forest boss Billy Davies was nothing but honest, in his assessment of the performance served up against Barnsley on Saturday following the 2-2 draw at the City Ground.

After tearing rivals Derby County apart at home on Wednesday night, the display against the Tykes was something of a surprise. Although it was always going to be difficult to reproduce another performance of that calibre, it was still a disappointment to see so many of the players below par on Saturday.

Davies told the official site. 'We didn't deserve anything with the way we went about our business - I think we were still suffering from the aftermath of our last game and one or two heads were still on that. I'm delighted to have got something and at the end of it all it's a great point. We defended badly for both of their goals. We plotted our own downfall by the way we went about things.'

It's good to see the gaffer acknowledge we were lucky and not make excuses for the poor showing. It's also good that we're still in touch with the rest of the teams chasing the promotion places. The draw leaves us just 2 points off the top 6, with at least 2 games in hand on the teams above us. Still all to play for and we have the chance to rectify matters on Monday, when we travel to Roy Keane's Ipswich.
