A draw’s no good

2 April 2015

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman believes ‘a draw is no good to anybody’ in tomorrow’s game against Wolves.

Both teams are pursuing a top-six finish and will be determined to take points off each other at The City Ground.

With that in mind, Freedman is expecting an enthralling encounter.

The manager told Forest Player: “It’s a fantastic challenge for the players and a wonderful game because the two teams will be very open – a draw’s no good to anybody.

“It’s a good one for the fans to see some goalmouth action.

“I felt against Norwich we were affected a little by certain bits of their quality. We need to impose our game on to Wolves.

“Kenny Jackett’s done very well and we need to take care of his strikers. It’ll be a very good game and I’m looking forward to it.”

Freedman will be able to call on new loan signing Chuba Akpom for the first time and he will also have Dexter Blackstock available to him after the striker recovered from an injury that forced him off the field at Norwich.

And the manager’s defensive ranks have also been bolstered recently.

Freedman said: “Jack Hobbs is back in training. He was actually good to go against Norwich but I just felt with only a couple of days’ training it was too much to ask of him. He’s been training over the break and is looking very good.

“Matty Fryatt is still struggling. He’s feeling his Achilles a little bit. He’s been fine running and moving but he’s not ready.

“And I feel with young Chuba and Tyler there’s no need to rush him.”
