Cox: ‘No Bad Apples’

1 October 2013

Nottingham Forest striker Simon Cox has told Forest Player that spirit is high throughout the camp ahead of The Reds’ trip to Charlton this evening (kick-off 7.45pm).

The 26 year old is one of a number of players who featured heavily last season only to have found it difficult to break into the starting 11 so far this campaign.

But, despite that, the Republic of Ireland international insists everyone is supporting each other.

Cox said: “When you come to big clubs with good players you always expect a bit of competition. At the minute the lads are doing well and it’s tough to displace anybody.

“No-one’s sulking, no-one’s being negative towards anyone else. We’re a squad of players who want the football club to do well. If you’re not playing, you’re wishing the lads well every matchday. There are no ‘bad apples’. We’re all pulling in the same direction.”

Tonight sees Forest travel to the capital for the first time this season, and Cox is hoping for a victory to boost The Reds’ away form.

He said: “We have two trips on the bounce coming up and we’re expecting big things from both games. Hopefully we can come away from them with a good number of points.

“Our attitude has got to be right against Charlton. We expect a good performance, especially off the back of a win against our rivals.”
