Nottingham Forest manager Stuart Pearce says his side must continue to improve if they are to return from Bolton on Saturday with three points.The new manager has overseen a perfect start to the 2014-15 season after his side beat Blackpool and Tranmere, keeping two clean sheets in the process.
But Pearce insists his men will have to take their performance to another level this weekend.
Speaking to Forest Player this morning, he said: “We need to just keep improving on what we’re doing – improving the spirit around the camp, improving the professionalism. Every aspect of this football club has to keep getting better day by day.
“We’ll do our homework on Bolton but we need to concentrate fully on what we’re going to do.
“We know we’ll have to improve on our first two performances to beat them but we’ll be going there endeavouring to win the match.”
Pearce watched Bolton in pre-season action and, while The Trotters have made a shaky start to the season, losing 3-0 at Watford on opening day and needing extra time to beat Bury in Tuesday’s Capital One Cup first round, the Forest manager believes they will provide difficult opposition.
He said: “They looked a team of experience that passed the ball very well.
“We have to make sure we silence the crowd early on, get a foothold in the game and take it from there.
"They’re a good side who have some good technicians in the likes of Mark Davies and Jay Spearing.”
