Karl Eyes Clarets Clash

20 November 2013

Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Karl Darlow has told Forest Player that The Reds can ‘send a message’ by beating league leaders Burnley at The City Ground on Saturday.

In Danny Ings and Sam Vokes The Clarets possess the most dangerous attacking duo in the division, the pair have registered 23 goals between already this season, but Forest’s number one believes he and his teammates can shut them out.

Darlow said: “The defenders have got to try and keep them quiet first and foremost. We’ll concentrate on our own game though and everything else should take care of itself. We work on shapes and patterns to beat them and if we play our football then we’ll have a good go.

“People look out for results but if we can beat Burnley then it is just another three points for us. It will send out a message to the teams in this league if we can get the win and we’re confident that we can do that.”

Billy Davies’ men head into the contest on the back of a superb 2-0 victory at Leicester before the international break, but Darlow insists the squad is not getting carried away despite their recent triumph at The King Power Stadium.

He said: “Leicester had a lot of chances, as they were always going to, but we defended superbly. I don’t think we’ve won away from home against them for eight years so it gives us something to build on now.

“We have players here who know the league and who know there will be ups and downs. We just need to keep battling on and stay in that top six.”
