Forest striker Billy Sharp believes The Reds are close to developing the requisite consistency to mount a serious playoff push.Alex McLeish’s men have struggled to string positive results together all season – but on Saturday have the opportunity to secure a second consecutive home win.
If they are to do so, however, they will have to get past a Watford side sitting in the final playoff place and who have already defeated The Reds this season.
Sharp said: “We are starting to show signs that we are getting close to playing consistently well but we need to get there sooner rather than later otherwise we will be too late.
“We went there on a good run of form earlier in the season but our consistency ended up letting us down.
“Daniel Ayala’s red card obviously cost us, but even if we had 11 men on the pitch I don’t think we could have a got a result that day – Watford played very well and thoroughly deserved their win.
“We owe them one – hopefully we can learn from the mistakes we made at Vicarage Road and get the three points.”
