Nottingham Forest boss Dougie Freedman believes wins will soon come if his side keep believing in themselves.

It had looked like had looked like Ipswich would take all three points after Jonathan Parr gave his side a 75th minute lead.

But an injury-time goal from debutant Liam Trotter rescued a dramatic point for Forest to claim their second home draw in a week.

And, despite having failed to win any of their last six games, Freedman is confident a change in fortune is just around the corner.

“I am happy with our performance today, we have turned zero points into a fantastic point,” he said.

“We showed great spirit after falling behind and have battled right until the very end.

“We created a number of good chances in the first half and could have been 3-0 up at the break, but that is a common theme at the moment.

“It is important that we maintain our high standards of performance and keep believing in ourselves.

“I am sure that a change in fortune is around the corner if we keep believing in ourselves. We are on the right path and the wins will come.

Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy struggled to hide his disappointment after watching his side chuck the points away at the death.

“We have got a point and played well today, but it feels like a defeat,” he said.

“I am very disappointed with the result, we were not really hanging on at the end and we should not have let them get the cross away.

“We done well to clear the ball off the line, but it has fallen to Trotter. It seems it is just the way things are going at the moment.

“Gerken has been fantastic for us and he is as disappointed as anyone with the goal, but I am certainly not going to point the finger of blame,

“We should have made more of our second half chances and wrapped the game up, but I am pleased with our performance.”
