James Forrest: Celtic winger positive despite not scoring in Kilmarnock win

James Forrest left Celtic Park on Sunday wondering how he failed to dent, although scottish Premiership leaders Celtic asserted their three-point lead with a 3-1 triumph against Kilmarnock near the peak of the table.
The Hoops winger hit the woodwork twice and has been denied times by Kilmarnock goalkeeper Laurentiu Branescu, keeping him on seven goals for the season.
Following Ryan Christie’s finish and Odsonne Edouard’s brace curved off a comeback victory for Celtic, Forrest insists the quite a few chances made by the Scottish champions proved to be a favorable sign.
Forrest explained:“Their goalkeeper was right up for it right from the beginning and he made a good couple of rents.
„He left us work for your own goals, but it is always hard against Kilmarnock, home or away.
„There are some games in the season when you might get 1 chance and you score.
„Then there are ones like yesterday I had four or five chances, but it simply didn’t occur.
„But it shows you are playing well and with confidence when you are getting plenty of chances. If you keep doing the right things the goals will come“
Celtic have won their first six league matches now turn their focus together with Partick Thistle around Wednesday to their own Scottish League Cup quarter-final and to sit three points clear of Rangers.
Forrest included:“Ever since we came back in pre-season we’ve been to a lot of areas in various competitions.
„We are on a good run and we all had a great win on Sunday.
„We are back on Wednesday and it is another major match, “ the quarter-final of this [League] Cup, thus we need to get ready and go again.“
