Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton says his side are improving with each game as they head to Barnsley tonight.
The Reds have won all three of their games so far but Warburton believes the performances are getting better and credits that to a whole squad effort.
He said: “It is pleasing but there is much we can improve upon. Against Millwall we were lucky to get anything let alone the three points. Shrewsbury was slightly better but nowhere near the levels and Saturday was much better but there is still a long way to go.
“We are only three games in and we are getting better with every game. Tonight will be a tough test against a team that will be scrapping for points but we are looking forward to it.
“The games come thick and fast and the league is described as relentless, but our preparation has to be relentless. We have to look at it one game at a time and each session or analysis has to be specific and driven towards that game. If we get it right game by game then we will be alright and if we allow our preparation to be diluted in any way, we will pay the price.
“You want the new players to be involved but also credit must go to the existing players. The work is being done throughout the squad, not just in the first eleven – they are all contributing. It is good to see the new boys involved and for them to understand how we want the game played and the demands of playing for a club like Nottingham Forest.”
