James Forrest abandoned Celtic Park on Sunday wondering how he didn’t dent, although scottish Premiership leaders maintained their lead with a 3-1 win against Kilmarnock at the top of the desk.
The Hoops winger struck the woodwork twice and was denied multiple occasions by Kilmarnock goalkeeper Laurentiu Branescu, keeping him.
After the brace and the ending of Ryan Christie of Odsonne Edouard curved off a comeback victory for Celtic, Forrest insists that the chances generated by the champions proved to be a signal.
Forrest said:”Their goalkeeper was straight up for it straight from the start and he left a excellent couple rents.
“He made us work for your goals, but it is always hard against Kilmarnock, home or off.
“There are some games at the season if you have 1 chance and you score.
“Then there are people just like yesterday I had four or five chances, but it just didn’t occur.
“But it shows you’re playing well and with confidence whenever you’re getting lots of opportunities. If you continue doing the right things the goals will come.”
Celtic have won their first six league games turn their attention together with Partick Thistle on Wednesday to their own Scottish League Cup quarter-final and to sit three points clear of Rangers in the peak of the desk.
Forrest included:”Ever since we arrived back into pre-season we’ve been to a lot of places in various competitions.
“We are on a fantastic run and we all had a great win on Sunday.
“We’re back on Wednesday and it is another big match, ” the quarter-final of this [League] Cup, therefore we will need to get ready and move again.”
