Nottingham Forest defender Danny Fox thinks ‘everyone is buying into’ what Dougie Freedman has done since he joined the club.Speaking after The Reds beat Wigan 3-0 at The City Ground, to make it two wins out of two for the new manager, Fox said every player knows their role under Freedman and they are all working for him.
“The gaffer has got his own imprint that he wants to put on the team and I think it’s showing.
“He understands the players - the way we feel, the way we want to play and everyone is buying into it.
“We’ve always said we had the ability so maybe it’s confidence or just a new face, I don’t know what it is, but the gaffer has got his own input and him and Lennie Lawrence have come in and set a stall out.”
Goals from Britt Assombalonga, Chris Burke and Henri Lansbury gave Forest their win, and Fox thought the side played some good football at times.
He said: “All round it was a very good performance. I think the fans will be happy with what they saw tonight, especially the football we played. We were patient before we scored the first goal and we kept the ball reasonably well.
“We pressed a bit more and kept nicking the ball and there was loads of space in the middle of the park for Henri, Benny and Gards, who I thought was excellent tonight protecting the back four.
“We have to take each game as it comes – I know it’s a cliché, but I think it’s a good start.”
