Forest learn hard lesson

Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies has called on his players to learn from the way Portsmouth play to improve their game.

Pompey ran out 2-1 winners at Fratton Park after Liam Lawrence scored the second-half winner. Forest's Paul Anderson had earlier cancelled out Ibrahima Sonko's header in the opening period.

"When you look at the game, what we need to learn here is that maybe we should look to take a leaf out of their book and the way in which they play," said Davies. "We want to play the Forest way and we did play some wonderful football during periods of the game.

"But we lost soft goals. We had a huge amount of chances to get back into the game, go in front and score goals. We're young and we're immature at times. We're still not realising how to play and grind out results. That's the part we've got to learn."
