Something to build on

12 February 2016

Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Dorus de Vries says the team’s recent run is something for the players to build on, and something for opponents to worry about.

The Dutchman has kept four consecutive league clean sheets, helping stretch Forest’s unbeaten run to 13 matches.

And de Vries believes Forest’s defensive stability is something opponents must take into account.

He told Forest Player HD: “I went through a similar spell at Swansea. When you keep loads of clean sheets teams look at you in a different way. They have to, it’s as simple as that.

“We’re hard to beat, we’re nice and solid at the back and that’s something we can build on.

“The guys in front of me are on a great run of form and let’s hope we keep it that way, and another clean sheet and victory will come. Especially at home, it would be lovely to keep that run going.”

The next team to try to topple Forest will be David Wagner’s Huddersfield Town, who arrive at The City Ground tomorrow (kick-off 3pm).

And de Vries believes Forest are ready to continue their impressive recent work.

He said: “We take every opponent seriously – we look at them, break them down, see what their threats are. The gaffer, coaches and analysts are doing a really good job at that. We know exactly what they’re all about.

“We’re going to make sure we stay on top of what we’ve been doing the last couple of months and we just want to extend the run we’re on at the moment.

“It’s a game that we cherish and look forward to.”
