Nottingham Forest defender Jack Hobbs has told Forest Player that The Reds must raise their standards ahead of Saturday’s trip to his former club Leicester City.The 25 year old spent three years with The Foxes and helped them to promotion to the Championship but is hoping to be on the winning side when he returns in a Forest shirt this weekend.
He said: “I had a great time there and it is a good club. We won League One and then reached the playoffs in the following year but time has moved on and I’m looking to beat them now.
“They are second in the league and their home form is excellent so it would be a scalp if we could get the three points. We’re looking forward to the challenge and the whole squad are up for it.”
The Reds have suffered recent defeats to Yeovil and Blackpool but Hobbs admits that with the backing of over 3,300 Forest supporters at The King Power Stadium, they can get back on track against Nigel Pearson’s side.
He said: “We’ve not been as good as we’d have liked in recent weeks. It is time now to get back to keeping clean sheets which will then give us the foundation to go on and win games.
“We’ve dropped off our high standards lately but we know that with the quality in the side, we can put it right on Saturday.
“The Forest fans always sell out their away allocations, as they have this weekend, so we are aiming to give them something to celebrate.”
