Simon Cox has insisted that the Nottingham Forest faithful could have a huge impact on the rest of his side’s season.The Reds were recently backed in tremendous numbers at both Charlton and Sheffield Wednesday and a crowd of almost 27,000 fans witnessed last month’s demolition of Huddersfield at The City Ground.
And, as Cox told Forest Player ahead of this week’s home double-header against Ipswich (Tuesday, kick-off 7.45pm) and Wolves (Saturday, kick-off 3pm), he is adamant that support from the stands can help his team to success.
He said: “The two home games this week are important. We want everybody to get behind us again – hopefully the supporters are enjoying the football we are playing and they will turn up in their thousands and make a lot of noise.
“It really does help the players, they have a crucial part to play in our run-in.”
He and his teammates this morning began their preparations for tomorrow’s visit of Ipswich and the Republic of Ireland international has revealed that ‘complacency’ is this week’s buzzword.
He revealed: “We had a light training session this morning because we’ve had three games in quick succession, but what the gaffer did say in our meeting was that complacency is unacceptable.
“His message is clear and we’ll come in tomorrow ready and raring to go.”
