Billy Davies says his Nottingham Forest side are looking forward to playing their part in ‘the run-in’, starting at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.With over half of the Sky Bet Championship campaign completed, Football League sides up and down the land are preparing themselves for the all-important race to the end of the season.
And the Reds boss knows if his side are to keep up with the pack they must continue to treat matches like Saturday’s with the utmost importance.
He told Forest Player: “We’re now prepared for a very difficult January. We’ll focus firmly on what is known as ‘the run-in’ to the end of the season and keep doing the very best we can.
“Bolton are a very big club with good players and they have a huge expectation surrounding them.
“We know what we face. We have to respect the opposition and work extremely hard to try to cause problems and pick up three points.”
The Reds go into The Trotters clash in sensational form but their manager believes that, irrespective of results, the camaraderie within their ranks make them a force to be reckoned with.
He said: “Even in the games we should have won this season but didn’t, our spirit has been excellent. The atmosphere in the dressing room is first class. We have a fantastic group here who are very conscientious and work extremely well.
“I’m sure our fans will not only be delighted with our application and effort, but also the quality of our recent play. On our day we’re capable of beating any side in this division.
“The players are on a great run, confidence is very high and we’ll just keep working away.”
