Billy Davies says his Nottingham Forest side are ignoring the form guide as they prepare to host relegation-threatened Wolves at The City Ground on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).Dean Saunders’ men sit just a point above the relegation zone after claiming their first win in 14 matches at Millwall on Tuesday night, while Forest go into Saturday’s match as favourites to earn their fifth consecutive victory.
But Davies told Forest Player that this season’s events at Molineux haven’t even crossed his mind in the run up to the weekend.
He said: “What goes on at other clubs is nothing to do with us but we will give everyone, from top to bottom, the utmost respect.
“I don’t buy into form, runs or favourites – this is all about preparing correctly and treating our opponents with respect ahead of what will be another tough match.”
Davies thought his men looked tired as they battled to a 1-0 win over nine-man Ipswich in midweek, but any worries that their fatigue might carry into Saturday have been shelved by the Scot.
He said: “Rotation was certainly an option for us on Tuesday after Saturday’s late kick-off on a heavy pitch at Hillsborough, but I think it’s different this weekend.
“The players had a very well-earned day off this week before two full days of preparation for the Wolves game.”
