Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman says his team have had ‘a very good week’ in the build up to Cardiff’s visit on Saturday.For the first time this season Freedman has been handed a week with no Tuesday night fixture.
And the manager is delighted with how preparations have gone ahead of the weekend.
Freedman said: “It’s been good from an injury point of view. A few people have been feeling tired after playing Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday.
“It catches up with you, especially when it comes right at the start of the season.
“It’s been a very good week.”
Cardiff are yet to taste defeat in the league so far this season and Freedman is acutely aware of the threat Russell Slade’s men pose.
He said: “Cardiff are a good side – people are underestimating them. They’ve got good experience in their team and people who have won Championships before. We need to make sure they don’t see much of the ball.
“They’ve got four very good strikers that we’ve done a lot of homework on and we want to keep them away from the areas we think they’re dangerous.”
