Dorus aiming for St Andrew's success

15 September 2015

Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Dorus de Vries says the squad are in a confident frame of mind ahead of tomorrow night's trip to Birmingham City.

The Reds make the journey to St Andrew's in high spirits following Saturday's 2-1 win at Queens Park Rangers and the Dutchman says Forest are ready to take on Gary Rowett's in-form Blues.

Speaking to Forest Player HD he said: "We always have team meetings before games to discuss the opposition. We know everything about Birmingham and we feel ready to go there and put in another good performance.

"If you're winning away from home against a good side like QPR then it builds confidence. We want to take Saturday's display into tomorrow night's game and get another three points.

"We needed that performance on Saturday just to give us something to build on. Now we want to use that victory and push on."

Forest fell behind at Loftus Road as Charlie Austin's shot squirmed past a diving de Vries and the goalkeeper says he was disappointed to make such a mistake following his strong start to the campaign.

He said: "It was an error. Simple as that. I should have saved it and there's no other explanation than that.

"I was really disappointed in myself because I don't want to let my team-mates, the manager or the supporters down. It was a terrible moment for me to make us go 1-0 down.

"Fortunately for me the team responded really well and we managed to get the three points which is the most important thing. I'm really grateful for that."
