Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman says it would be ‘dangerous’ to underestimate Blackpool this weekend.The Tangerines sit bottom of the Sky Bet Championship, eight points adrift of safety, and this weekend they face a Forest side showing promising signs of embarking on a winning streak.
But Freedman is nevertheless wary of the threat Blackpool pose.
He told Forest Player this afternoon: “They are down in the dumps, but in this division you can’t take anybody lightly. That’s a very dangerous attitude to adopt.
“We’ve got to make sure we go there with a plan. The players’ confidence is high and they’re looking forward to it.
“The way we’re playing right now I think we’ve got a very good opportunity to take the three points. It’s certainly a winnable game, which would round off a fantastic week for us.”
And Freedman is adamant the match will go down to the wire.
He said: “The game will only be won in the last 10-15 minutes because of the pitch situation and the fact they’re fighting for their lives.
“Our players are fully aware of that. It’s just a case of making sure we start well and don’t get too carried away with ourselves.”
