Danny delighted to out-fox Royals

24 August 2014

Danny Fox ‘doesn’t really care’ which position he plays, as long as Nottingham Forest keep winning.

The 28-year-old was at the heart of a defence which kept a clean sheet in yesterday’s convincing win over Reading, preserving Forest’s unbeaten record and their position at the top of the Sky Bet Championship.

And, while he’s a left back by trade, Fox is more than happy to help his manager out as the likes of Jamaal Lascelles and Kelvin Wilson edge closer to fitness.

Speaking after the match, Fox said: “There’s a lot of competition but I’m enjoying it. I’ll play anywhere and do my best for the team.

“I think being able to play in different positions adds to my own credentials as well, but as long as we’re winning I don’t really care.”

Michail Antonio scored twice before Britt Assombalonga joined him on the scoresheet, and Fox believes the pair have given Forest an extra dimension this season.

He said: “We can hurt teams a lot more in behind now. We’re mixing our game up because we know when to play it in behind or when to keep it and move the opposition about.

“I don’t think we started the game particularly well but we went into half-time 1-0 up and came out firing for the second half. We looked a lot more convincing.

“The second goal settled everyone’s nerves. It’s good that we’ve got people scoring goals on a regular basis – long may it continue."
