Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Dorus de Vries hopes the team can continue to build momentum with a victory at Cardiff tomorrow night.
The Dutchman was helpless to prevent Sam Byram scoring an excellent equaliser for Leeds yesterday as Forest were held to a 1-1 draw at The City Ground.
But he is hoping to convert yesterday’s frustrations into success in the Welsh capital tomorrow, against a side who have won only twice in their last seven matches.
Speaking after the Leeds game, de Vries said: “It might be a good time to play them but, on the other hand, they will have had two days off and we’ll have had one as we’re travelling tomorrow (today). We don’t want to use that as an excuse of course – we want to go for the three points.
“We’ve got a little run going and we’re looking forward to the Cardiff game because we want to put things right by taking three points and keeping our momentum.“
Yesterday’s draw took Forest to within seven points of sixth place ahead of today’s Sky Bet Championship fixtures.
De Vries said: “I’m looking up, not down and I’m sure the whole squad is looking that way after the run we’ve been on since Brentford.
“We’re showing progression and we’ve got to keep showing that throughout the season. The Championship’s a long, long road and there are some hard games coming up.
“We’re all looking forward to the challenge.”
