Pinillos confident ahead of Royals test

22 April 2017

Nottingham Forest defender Dani Pinillos says The Reds are in confident mood ahead of this afternoon's match against Reading at The City Ground.

Forest suffered back-to-back defeats over the Easter period but the Spanish left back says confidence is still high in the squad as they return to Trentside for the match with Jaap Stam's promotion-chasing Reading.

He said: "We are confident because we have been playing well, like in the last game against Cardiff we played well and they had two real chances – one against the crossbar and the other the goal. We played very well and for me, a draw or a win would have been the fair result. We had chances but when the ball doesn’t want to go in, it is impossible.

"I expect a difficult game because Reading play very well. There are no easy games though and it is tough to have two or three games in one week. It is difficult as you have to quickly change and refocus and forget about the last game. It will be a difficult game as they are third in the table and pushing for promotion so it will be a hard game, as always. 

"If you have the fans behind you, it is easier and you start more comfortably and concentrated. We have played well away and also at home but the home results have been good and we get good results here against the best teams in the league. This weekend hopefully we can get three points and move away from the bottom. At The City Ground the fans are always there to push you on and help you to do better."
