Nottingham Forest winger Jamie Paterson has told Forest Player he wants to ‘show what he can do’ in tonight’s Capital One Cup clash with Burnley (kick-off 7.45pm).The 21 year old was named Man of the Match in both of The Reds’ victories in the competition so far and will be trying his best to impress Billy Davies once again in his quest for a regular spot in his first team.
Paterson said: “Playing in the cup is just the same as any other game. I love playing games of football so I’m looking forward to it and hopefully I’ll show what I can do.
“I feel really settled at the club now, there are a good set of lads here. All I’m doing at the moment is just concentrating on my game and trying to get into the starting 11.”
Forest face a tough test against an in-form Burnley side who brushed aside York City and local rivals Preston North End earlier in the competition, but Paterson insists the squad are well prepared for the trip to Turf Moor.
He said: “It is going to be a tough game. Burnley are right up there in the league and they aren’t there without good reason.
“Every cup game against Championship opposition is difficult and, as it was against Millwall, we’re expecting another hard game.”
