Forest were thankful to a Miguel Llera own goal in the closing stages for their three points after both sides missed a series of good chances.

"This is this division," O'Driscoll said. "There's a small margin between the top and the bottom.

"The game could have gone either way, both teams were guilty of missed chances.

"We won't be swinging from the rooftops - we've got a bit of work to do but I've got the right players to do that work.

"At least we are moving in the right direction. There will be a few bumps in the road, but we're getting there."
