West Ham manager David Moyes has hailed the Nottingham Forest supporters during yesterday’s win for the Reds on Trentside.

Forest defeated the UEFA Conference League outfit 1-0, with Taiwo Awoniyi scoring the game’s only goal just before half-time.

The result saw Forest bounce back from last weekend’s defeat to Newcastle and get off the mark in the Premier League.

Forest were hardworking, determined and resolute throughout the clash; although they did ride their luck at times.

The City Ground was truly rocking throughout the 90 minutes and Moyes was a fan of the atmosphere.

He told the club’s official website: “They gave us a tough game today, especially in the first 20-25 minutes.

“We were expecting it to be tough and we knew they were going to come out, and it was a terrific atmosphere in here. It’s a great old stadium, so it’s what we expected.

“When you play in that atmosphere, it’s great for them and it’s great for their players here. It shows you how much they’ve been waiting to get top-flight football here.”

The Reds will be hoping to see the supporters create a similar atmosphere at every game this season.

Forest’s fate during 2022/23 will likely be decided given their home form and the fans will play their part.

The Reds supporters will be massive in the quest to avoid relegation back to the Championship.

Ultimately, Forest will begin the campaign as one of the favourites for the drop given that they’ve not been in the Premier League for 23 years.

Moyes has been around the block when it comes to the Premier League and he’s stood on the side of pitch at plenty of top grounds.

For him to praise the Forest fan base is quite something and hopefully, other managers can find managing the crowd difficult this season.

Forest can tick one home game off and the hard matches come thick and fast with Tottenham next on Trentside.
