Nottingham Forest defender Danny Collins admits the team's performance in yesterday's 3-1 loss at Burnley was 'not acceptable'.The Reds were comfortably beaten by Sean Dyche's promotion-chasing side at Turf Moor and Collins says there is much hard work ahead.
He said: "We came here today on the back of a good result on Wednesday but we never got going this afternoon. We were up against it from the first whistle and the first half was not good enough.
"We almost tried to play too much football and we got stung. There were some choice words in the dressing room at half-time and we then produced a much better second-half performance."
Despite losing their 14-game unbeaten league run, Collins says the players will pick their heads up ahead of the visit of Wigan Athletic next weekend.
He said: "The display in the first-half was not acceptable and it is vital that we learn and move on. Second half was much more like us but there isn't too much credit to take out of today.
"We've got a week now to freshen up and get ready for Wigan. This result has hurt us but it is important that we learn from it and move on."
