Forest manager Sean O’Driscoll believes his side can take positives from last night’s draw at home to Middlesbrough.The Teessiders had, until last night, won six away games on the bounce and O’Driscoll was pleased with his side’s approach.
He said: “When you look at the game and ask ‘what did we do well’, we got a lot of balls into the box, especially in the first half, but we weren’t tight enough to feed off the broken play when it bounced down, so there’s something we can work on.
“We continued to make chances and the back four looks more solid now Elliott Ward has played his second game and we’ve worked on a few things in training. Greg Halford came back in and gave us more options too.”
Focus now switches to Saturday’s trip to Leicester and O’Driscoll doesn’t believe The Foxes’ home advantage will have any influence on proceedings.
He said: “If you look at the Championship, sides don’t win at home. It’s becoming more and more difficult because teams are becoming more organised. Home fans demand a lot so you’ve got to be careful.
“The margins are very tight in this division. Wins come with performances so you’ve got to concentrate on that.
“I’d definitely be happy if we can replicate Tuesday’s level of performance at Leicester.”
