Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic maintained their lead near the top of the desk with a 3-1 win against Kilmarnock, but James Forrest abandoned Celtic Park on Sunday wondering just how he didn’t dent.
Kilmarnock goalkeeper Laurentiu Branescu hit the woodwork twice and denyed the Hoops winger several occasions, keeping him seven goals for the season.
But after Odsonne Edouard’s brace and Ryan Christie’s finish curved off a comeback victory for Celtic, Forrest considers that the chances generated by the Scottish champions proved to be a positive sign.
Forrest stated:”Their goalkeeper was correct up for it right from the start and he left a great few saves.
“He left us work for your own goals, but it’s always tough against Kilmarnock, home or off.
“There are a few games at the season when you have one opportunity and you score.
“Then there are people just like yesterday I had four or five opportunities, but it simply didn’t occur.
“However, it shows you’re playing well and with confidence whenever you’re getting a lot of opportunities. If you continue doing the perfect things the goals will come”
Celtic have won their first six league matches to sit three points clear of Rangers at the peak of the desk and turn their attention together with Partick Thistle on Wednesday to their own Scottish League Cup quarter-final.
Forrest included:”Since we came back into pre-season we have been to lots of areas in various competitions.
“We are on a good run and we all had a great win on Sunday.
“We are back here on Wednesday and it’s another large game, ” the quarter-final of this [League] Cup, so we will need to get ready and move again.”
