Positive changes

11 December 2015

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman says he has noticed a change in his team in recent matches.

The Reds have won three of their last four games, most recently a comfortable 3-0 victory over Fulham at The City Ground.

And, ahead of tomorrow night’s trip to Wolves, Freedman says he has noticed a slight alteration to his side’s approach.

The manager told Forest Player HD: “I think things have changed on the pitch. We look more resilient in the last ten minutes of games, and in the first ten minutes we ease our way into it a little bit so we don’t get caught out. That’s what’s given us that winning mentality right now.

“The lads have always been good trainers, but this week there’s an atmosphere which suggests they’re looking forward to winning games of football.

“Wolves will be a very hard team to break down. They get the ball wide and cross it. But we’ve done a lot of work on it. We feel if we can have the right application and start the right way, it’s a winnable game.”
Forest are unbeaten in five home matches, but must now take their good form on the road.

That isn’t a daunting prospect for Freedman, who is happy with what he’s seen from his team away from home.

He said: “I believe our away performances have been good. Birmingham springs to mind, when they were flying high, QPR when they were flying high.

“We’ve got a good record in terms of performance and picking up three points on the road and long may that continue.”
