The run goes on

5 February 2016

Nottingham Forest defender Matt Mills says the unbeaten run continues as far as the players are concerned.

The Reds slipped to a cruel late defeat against Watford in the Emirates FA Cup last weekend, the first time they had been beaten since 21 November.

But Forest are still proving themselves a tough nut to crack in the league and could make it 13 matches since their last Sky Bet Championship loss when they travel to Leeds tomorrow.

Mills is likely to captain the side at Elland Road and will be hoping to lead The Reds to another resolute display.

He told Forest Player HD: “In terms of our unbeaten run, for everyone in the dressing room it’s still going.

“The cup is a completely different competition. I think you go into it with no fear and see where it takes you.

“The league is where our full concentration is. We’re proud of the record so far, we need to keep that going and it should be a good game tomorrow.

“We’ve had the opportunity to rest a few tired bodies after the Christmas period and now we’re really getting to the run-in – the business end of the season.

“We’re fully focused on picking up as many points as we can from now until the end of the season.”

A crowd of almost 28,000 saw Forest draw 1-1 with Leeds over the festive period.

And Mills was impressed with what he saw that night from tomorrow’s opponents.

He said: “A new manager’s gone in and got them organised. I thought they were good when they played at our place and the atmosphere was brilliant on the night.

“I’m very much looking forward to this one.”
