Pick Up Where We Left Off

11 April 2014

Nottingham Forest temporary manager Gary Brazil has called on his players to pick up where they left off on Tuesday night when they face Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

Brazil’s side came from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 with Sheffield Wednesday and he had plenty of positives to take from the performance.

He told Forest Player: “We feel good. Obviously we finished the game positively on Tuesday night by coming back and getting ourselves a point and we’ll be looking to take how we finished the game into our display at Loftus Road on Saturday.”

And Brazil’s squad are all relishing the prospect of heading down to West London.

He said: “We got the players back out on the grass this morning and they look really good. Matches like Saturday’s are the type of game I as a player would have wanted to play in myself.

“You haven’t got to lift them for it. It’s a match that is very attractive in their eyes and we want to go down there and give a good account of ourselves.”

QPR’s squad is one of the finest in the division, but that’s a challenge Brazil and his squad are embracing.

He said: “They’ve got quality all over the pitch; they’ve got experienced players and individuals who can open you up.

“They are strong in possession so we’ve got to be very good without the ball. That’s something we’ve got to work better at.

“But I think there will be opportunities for us to go and play as well. As good as QPR are on the ball we’ve got to be brave.”

The Reds put in a good performance in their last away game, at Ipswich, and Brazil is looking forward to visiting Loftus Road.

He said: “It’s a lovely ground because the fans are so tight to the pitch. It’s a great surface, it’s going to be a good game of football and we’re looking forward to the game.

“Our last away match was a very good experience so I would hope and expect us to perform as we did down at Portman Road a couple of weeks ago.”
