Henri Lansbury has told Forest Player that The Reds must ‘carry the momentum’ into Saturday’s ‘Kids for a Quid’ match against Bournemouth at The City Ground (kick-off 3pm).The Cherries, who currently sit 8th in the table, have so far been one of the most unpredictable sides in the division, and Lansbury insists that manager Billy Davies has the squad well prepared ahead of their visit.
He said: “We’ve done our homework on them and it is important that we take the manager’s message into the game. He has told us to work hard, get the ball in the box and really go for it.
“They will try and make it difficult for us but we feel that we should be winning our home matches. It was a great result at Brighton and we need to carry that momentum into this weekend.”
While some will be concerned that the two-week international break may have interrupted The Reds’ rhythm, Lansbury is adamant that the rest and recovery time has been more beneficial.
He said: “We’ve rested up over the break and from what I’ve seen in training this week, all the lads look fresh and raring to go. It could have stopped that momentum but, with the squad that we have, I don’t think that’s the case.
“There’s no better feeling than getting a win at The City Ground so we’ll be doing everything we can to take all three points.”
