James Forrest left Celtic Park on Sunday wondering just how he failed to score, although scottish Premiership leaders asserted their three-point lead near the peak of the table with a 3-1 win against Kilmarnock.
The Hoops winger hit the woodwork twice and has been denied times by Kilmarnock goalkeeper Laurentiu Branescu, maintaining him seven goals for this season.
But following the brace and Ryan Christie’s finish of Odsonne Edouard curved off a comeback victory for Celtic, Forrest considers the chances produced by the Scottish champions was a positive indication.
Forrest explained:”Their goalkeeper was appropriate up for it right from the beginning and he left a fantastic couple rents.
“He left us work for your own goals, but it is always hard against Kilmarnock, home or away.
“There are a few games at the season if you have one opportunity and you score.
“Then there are ones such as yesterday where I had four or five chances, but it simply didn’t happen.
“But it shows you’re playing well and with confidence whenever you’re getting loads of opportunities. If you keep doing the correct things then the goals will come”
Celtic have won their first six league matches to sit three points clear of Rangers in the peak of the desk and turn their focus to their own Scottish League Cup quarter-final together with Partick Thistle on Wednesday.
Forrest included:”Ever since we came back into pre-season we have been to lots of areas in various competitions.
“We are on a fantastic run and we all had a good win on Sunday.
“We’re back here on Wednesday and it is another huge game, ” the quarter-final of this [League] Cup, so we need to get ready and go again.”
