Dexter Blackstock boosted by Nottingham Forest double
Last updated on .From the section Football
Nottingham Forest striker Dexter Blackstock says scoring twice in his side's victory at Birmingham has given him a "massive" boost.
The 25-year-old helped Forest to a 2-1 win, with his first goals since returning from a knee ligament injury.
Blackstock told BBC Radio Nottingham: "It is massive for me personally. To come back from so long out and get the first goals since coming back is huge.
"I never doubted that I would be back and able to play at this level."
The former QPR striker was injured during Forest's 2-0 victory in Cardiff in November 2010 and returned to first-team action in the Reds' home defeat by Crystal Palace in December last year.
"I never doubted myself," added Blackstock. "I have been ready for a couple of months to play my part.
"It is a little bit of weight off my shoulders but it is only my third start of the season, so it wasn't like pressure was building.
"At most clubs I have been at, especially Nottingham Forest, I have had a good knack of scoring important goals and it was the same at QPR. I tend to pop up at the most important times."
