Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies simply wants his players to ‘keep it going’ with a positive result at Burnley’s Turf Moor tomorrow (kick-off 3pm).Henri Lansbury earned The Reds a late point at home to fellow play-off hopefuls Brighton yesterday, but Davies’ men must now venture to Lancashire to meet a Clarets side who will be determined to end their eight-match unbeaten run.
Speaking after Saturday’s match, Davies said: “We’ve got to keep the run going. It’s pure and simple, we’ve just got to carry on doing what we have been.
“We’ve got good players, good togetherness and a good spirit. We look forward to the challenge.
“There’s seven games to go and we just have to keep going.”
Darius Henderson led the line in impressive fashion against The Seagulls, and the striker warned against complacency ahead of the Easter Monday meeting.
Henderson said: “It’s important we remain focussed and motivated, as we have been in the last eight games.
“We’re unbeaten in that time and we need to continue our push for promotion. It’s not going to be easy - there are teams in this league who are capable of going on a run. We can’t become complacent.
“It’s important we prepare properly and hopefully that will allow us to at least pick up enough points to remain in the playoff places.”
The point against Gus Poyet’s men came on the back of the international break and Lewis McGugan, who came off the bench to score for the fourth match in a row, is pleased The Reds don’t have to wait long for their next fixture.
McGugan said: “One of the best things about the run-in is that there always seems to be a game around the corner.
“Burnley will come around quickly and we’ll be able to jump straight into it, hopefully taking three points in the process.”
