Another winnable game

2 March 2015

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman says his side’s attitude must be right if they are to beat Charlton tomorrow.

The Reds head south for the second time in four days – this time to London – to face a Charlton side who brushed Huddersfield aside at The Valley on Saturday.

And Freedman, who revealed he has no fresh injury concerns, hopes his men take what they learned in their 3-0 win over Reading into their latest challenge.

The manager told Forest Player: “If we can approach the game in the same way as we did in the second half against Reading it’s a winnable game for us.

“It’s going to be tough but I look at our team right now, with the confidence we’re playing with and the fantastic travelling support, and if we choose the right attitude I can see us winning. I feel we can take the game to them.

“The team’s got a good structure about it, a good organisation, and that’s given them the confidence to express themselves going forward.”

One man who won’t be making the trip is German midfielder Robert Tesche, who joined Birmingham City on loan this afternoon.

Freedman said: “It worked for all parties. I think Robert was feeling a bit frustrated – at his age he wanted to play.

“Birmingham have paid his full wages and I think having a responsibility to the board is always nice.

“It’s not long-term. Hopefully he’ll come back to us and fight for his place.”
