Nottingham Forest defender Matt Mills says putting points on the board is the best way to alleviate the players’ recent frustrations.
Mills and his team-mates have suffered three consecutive defeats, the disappointment of which has been exacerbated by the happy memories of a recent unbeaten run.
And the centre back is keen to see the team add to their points tally to leave the blip behind.
Mills told Forest Player HD: “We need to get points on the board. I think that’s the frustration in the dressing room – we’ve not picked up points coming off the back of a good run and we’ve hit a bit of a sticky patch.
“Personally I thought against Bristol City we could have been sitting in the dressing room at half-time two or three-nil up – I thought we were good.
“Second half, we were possibly frustrated and trying to force the issue, so tomorrow is a time for cool heads.
“We know it’s going to be a physical challenge but we also know there are things we have worked on that can hurt Ipswich.”
Forest will be backed by a healthy following of around 1,200 at Portman Road tomorrow and Mills revealed that he holds Forest fans in very high regard.
The former Manchester City, Leicester and Bolton man said: “I think the hardcore fans are fantastic at this football club. The away support this year has been brilliant – probably the best I’ve experienced in my career.
“It’s a massive thing for people to come and support us and it’s something we really appreciate. We’ve got another good following coming on Saturday and hopefully we can put on a strong performance and get a positive result.”
