Forss: Result was more important

21 February 2022

Forward Marcus Forss says picking up a point against Queens Park Rangers was more important than scoring his first goal for the club.

The Finland international netted in the first half as the Tigers drew 1-1 away to the play-off chasing Hoops.

“I’m very proud to score for such a big club, but the main thing was getting another point,” said Forss.

“It’s important for a striker to get off the mark, but the main talking point is that we got another point so personally I am very proud to have scored, but the point is the most important thing.

“There was a chance for us (to get a win), but the way QPR put pressure on us made it very difficult to earn three points.

“That can happen but we have to look at how we can improve from the performance and take it into Tuesday against Barnsley.”

The result was overshadowed by the injury to goalkeeper Matt Ingram that saw him carried off the field after a lengthy spell of treatment, with 19-year-old Harvey Cartwright coming on for his league debut. 

“You never want to see that happen (injury to Ingram) on a football pitch and especially to your teammate,” added Forss.

“At the time, you feel a bit shocked and it takes a bit of time to acknowledge what has happened and then it's a long break as well to get your legs working again so it’s always difficult to carry on from where you left off.

“Harvey coming off the bench and going in goal did very well and it was a very good debut from him.”
