Henderson ready for Robins showdown

20 January 2017

Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Stephen Henderson feels it is important to get back to winning ways against Bristol City tomorrow.

The goalkeeper kept a clean sheet against Birmingham last week in the goalless draw at St Andrew’s and feels The Reds can use that as a springboard to get a result against Bristol City at The City Ground.

Speaking to Forest Review, he said: “They are in a similar position to us but the signs show you can’t take it for granted. We both need to win the game; a draw won’t be good enough for either team. I fully expect us to go for it.

“We have nothing to lose and the few days we have had with Gary and Jack have been excellent so the foundations are there for a result. We just need to play with confidence and build on the Birmingham clean sheet and hopefully we can put one or two in at the other end.

“We just need to create more chances, anyone can see that. It would be nice to get a goal or two lead to settle everyone’s nerves. We have had a good week and we go into the game with nothing to lose and hope that the supporters are behind us.”

Tomorrow’s match will also see interim manager Gary Brazil take charge of the team alongside Jack Lester and he believes that with the backing of the fans and a positive atmosphere, The Reds can get a result.

He said: “I would like to thank you, our supporters, for your continued and unrelenting backing. It is vital that we all pull together and create an atmosphere in the stadium that provides energy for both the players and the fans.”

This week’s edition of Forest Review includes the thoughts of chairman and owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi, regular columns from Danny Taylor and David Marples, the lowdown on Bristol City and a look back at some classic encounters between the two sides.
