An untimely end

5 May 2016

Nottingham Forest head coach Paul Williams feels aggrieved that the season is reaching its conclusion but has targeted a positive ending at MK Dons.

Williams’ men have put in some promising displays in recent weeks and the coach is disappointed that time is about to run out on the 2015-16 campaign.

He told Forest Player HD: “I just think the season is coming to an end at the wrong time for us.

“Over the last few games we’ve been getting better and better, but it is the last game and I’m looking forward to it.

“I want to make sure the lads perform – we can’t put our foot on the brake. We need to kick on and end the season on a strong note.

“We have to make sure we run the same distance and attack at the same pace as we did against Fulham, and hopefully get a similar result.”

Williams says there has been a sickness bug in the camp recently and that some of his players will have to be assessed ahead of this weekend’s trip to stadiummk.

However he is hopeful that Dexter Blackstock and Michael Mancienne, who have both been struggling with injury, will be able to play a part.

Forest are expected to be backed by more than 4,000 supporters on the final day and, for Williams, the following reflects the size of the club.

He said: “It blows your mind. There’s not much riding on the game but to take that number of fans is astonishing and a credit to all Forest fans.

“I’ve been really proud that I’ve had the task of representing this club at management level – it’s been amazing and such a privilege.

“Having that many fans, it just shows how big a club it is.”
