Adlene Guedioura relayed a simple message to his teammates ahead of Nottingham Forest’s trip to Hull City on Saturday (kick-off 3pm) - simply to ‘carry on’.The Reds have been in superb form of late and on Saturday head to East Yorkshire in search of their sixth successive win.
But confidence comes with its own problems and the Algerian international this morning told Forest Player that nobody is getting ahead of themselves.
Guedioura said: “We have to carry on - like the gaffer said, we can’t be complacent. When you have high confidence sometimes you think you are the best team and then become complacent. That is a potential problem for us.
“Hull are a good team, they are second in the league, they have a good manager in Steve Bruce and they played good football in their 2-1 win at The City Ground earlier in the season.
“It’s a good challenge for us and we will go there high in confidence.”
The tenacious midfielder has become a mainstay in Billy Davies’ squad since the Scot returned to The City Ground last month, and Guedioura believes there is one particular reason to thank for his recent consistent form.
He said: “The gaffer has put me in my true position - it’s one that I like. Before he came in I was playing a little to the right and I don’t think it really suited me.
“He has put me in a role that I know and I think that’s why I’m playing better.”
