Nottingham Forest defender Eric Lichaj says the team’s defensive resilience will make teams dread playing The Reds.
Forest kept their third consecutive clean sheet in last night’s 0-0 draw with QPR and only top-two sides Hull and Middlesbrough have conceded fewer goals in the Sky Bet Championship.
Lichaj believes another solid defensive performance will further cement Forest’s reputation as a difficult side to break down.
The American said: “In the second half we didn’t get as many chances as in the first, so it was just unlucky that we couldn’t take our chances. But it was a good team performance.
“Everyone’s working together and you can tell defensively we’re on point. Teams will look at that and dread playing against us in the future.”
Forest’s next match is an Emirates FA Cup clash with Watford at The City Ground and Lichaj is looking forward to hopefully giving supporters a performance to be proud of against top-class opposition.
He said: “It’s a Premier League team so they will have some quality players. We’ll have to be on top form to do something special.
“Hopefully the fans will be roaring for us, we can get a few goals and we’ll see what happens.”
