Dougie Freedman heaped praise on Joe Mason and Craig Davies, after watching his Bolton side draw 2-2 with Nottingham Forest.

Wanderers twice led at Macron Stadium, courtesy of goals from Mason and David Wheater, but a brace from Britt Assombalonga brought the visitors level on both occasions.

Speaking after the game, Freedman thought both teams contributed towards a highly entertaining Championship affair and believes a draw was a fair result.

"I thought it was a fantastic attacking display from both teams and a great advertisement for the Championship," Freedman told the club's official website.

"Both sides gave it a right good go until the end. I think a draw was a fair result in the end.

"We had our chances, they had their chances, but that's what you get when you’re playing in the Championship. There's not a lot in it and that was the case today.

"I do believe Forest are going to be a top side. They've worked very well over the summer and we've matched them in every way today so I am very pleased with what I have seen.

"I felt that the tempo they played at and the attitude they showed is exactly what I'm looking for from my team.

"Craig (Davies) has worked very hard. I thought he was outstanding today. Him and Joe Mason worked well together. It does come down to fine moments in the Championship no doubt.

"Joe's a good player. He's a young player who needs games under his belt. He took his goal well. I was also more than pleased with the contribution from his team-mates behind him."
