Nottingham Forest midfielder Lee Peltier says he and his teammates must give the supporters something to shout about in their final-day clash with Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.The on-loan Leeds man has been an integral part of the Forest midfield since joining the club in March and he says his short spell at The City Ground has been both a positive experience and a learning curve at the same time.
Peltier told Forest Player: “I’ve enjoyed my time here with all the games I’ve played. I think for the last game of the season the fans deserve a good team performance.
“From the short time that I’ve been here I can safely say that the fans have been great. The support is magnificent home and away and they’ve backed me even though I only arrived here recently. They deserve to go home happy after a win on the final day of the season.
“Results have been a bit up and down and we’ve been searching for that bit of consistency. We went to Bournemouth hoping to keep the season alive but obviously it wasn’t to be. Now the club has to look forward to next season.”
Although Saturday’s game will have no bearing on the outcome of Forest’s season, Peltier insists that careers are still on the line even though his own immediate future is still unclear.
He said: “There’s people playing for contracts and trying to impress the new manager so everyone has something to play for. It is really important that we’re right up for it from that start.
“My future is still up in the air. I need to speak with my agent to see what options there are and also speak to Leeds about my time there. But all the players, fans and staff at Nottingham Forest have been great with me.”
