The Fans Deserve More

18 April 2014

Nottingham Forest’s Jamie Paterson has told Forest Player that he and his teammates are desperate to repay the backing they have received from supporters this season.

The Reds have endured a disappointing run of results of late but Forest fans have nevertheless continued to turn out in excellent numbers, something which hasn’t gone unnoticed among the players.

Paterson said: “We’ve got great support. We fill every away end no matter where we go and the fans deserve more than what they’re getting at the minute. A lot of people turned up to Tuesday’s open day and there was plenty of positivity.

“We need to restore a bit of pride. There are four games left and I want to score as many goals as I can to help the team pick up as many wins as possible.”

Paterson’s performances have been one of the biggest positives to have come out of the 2013-14 campaign, while the emergence of Ben Osborn has also been encouraging.

Paterson said: “It’s good bringing young players through. Ben came on against QPR last weekend and was quality, and he also played really well at Ipswich.

“As a young lad you just need that chance, which can be quite difficult to find at a club like Nottingham Forest, but he’s got that and hopefully he can kick on now.”
