Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman has spoken of his excitement ahead of this weekend’s trip to Leeds United.The Whites are expecting their biggest crowd of the season on Saturday, with Forest having sold out their away allocation.
And Freedman can’t wait for 3pm on Saturday.
He told Forest Player: “I’m really looking forward to it because it’s going to be two teams trying to win with ten games to go. That’s really exciting for me.
“For me as a coach it’s my time to relax. I’ve done my work. I sit back and enjoy watching the game, making sure my messages during the week are translating on to the pitch.
“The crowd’s going to be up for it and they are going to make sure they put us under pressure. But I’m looking forward to seeing how our lads respond.
“It takes character to deal with the environment and to understand that you might not have all the possession.
“But I think we have the characteristics in our squad to make sure we win the game. That’s all I’m interested in.”
While Matty Fryatt will miss the trip to West Yorkshire, Freedman had positive news to report on Henri Lansbury and Danny Fox.
He said: “We had a couple of injuries last week. Danny Fox missed the game with an ankle injury – he’ll be back in contention.
“Henri had to come off at half-time with bruised ribs, which has cleared up. He’s been training this week and will be back in contention as well.”
