Our Toughest Test

15 August 2013

Nottingham Forest captain Chris Cohen has told Forest Player that The Reds face the most difficult game of the season so far when Bolton Wanderers visit The City Ground on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).

The 26 year old has played a big part in a defence which kept clean sheets in both of Forest’s opening league matches, but Cohen knows the whole team will have to be at their best if they are to achieve a positive result against The Trotters.

Speaking ahead of the game, Cohen said: “It is the toughest game we’ve had so far. If you look at their team on paper and the money they’ve spent, they are the hardest side we’ve faced.

“I don’t think we’ll have a run of games as difficult as we’ve got at the moment but we believe in ourselves and we’re looking forward to the challenges ahead.”

Cohen took over the captaincy at the beginning of the season but the new skipper insists that he hasn’t changed his character on the pitch since taking the armband.

He said: “Things have changed a little bit because now I have to do little jobs for everyone, but obviously I get to lead the team out on a matchday. I’m not going to start shouting and screaming at everyone because that isn’t the way that I do things.

“I was immensely proud to lead the lads out against Huddersfield and it has been a great start for me as captain so far.

“I hope it continues on Saturday.”
