Supporters can make a difference

3 March 2017

Nottingham Forest manager Gary Brazil hopes the next generation of Reds fans can help cheer the team to three points in the Kids for a Quid fixture against Brighton.

Chris Hughton brings his side to The City Ground on Saturday and Brazil feels that with the backing of the fans, Forest can get the win.

He said: “Getting bums on seat is really important and the young fans are the next generation of football fans. It is important that we give them the opportunity to come in with discounts like this and we look forward to a City Ground that is relatively full on Saturday and if we can get more youngsters coming in to sample it, it is great for the future of this football club. 

“The camp is good and everyone is buoyed. We ended up getting what was a very workman-like point at Wigan last weekend which is never an easy place to go. We have had a good week on the training ground this week and we are looking forward to the next game.”

Brighton lost out to title rivals Newcastle on Tuesday night and Brazil feels that The Reds can pounce on any disappointment The Seagulls will be feeling after that fixture.

He said: “It will be a tough game against a team that will feel a little bit bruised from their game on Tuesday night but it is a game that we look forward to. With the disappointment they take out of Tuesday’s game we will be looking to jump right on that.

“We just concentrate on what we are doing. We have been preparing all week for a tough fixture irrespective of the result on Tuesday night; it doesn’t change anything from where we are coming from. We have a good idea of what we will be playing against and how to combat it. We have worked hard and looked at teams that have done well against them and we are looking to match that up. 

“They play normally with a four in midfield and two out-and-out strikers and they have lots of experience. Physically they are big and are a handful from set pieces so we know what we are going to be up against. We will have to ensure we start brightly as they tend to do that after watching them on Tuesday.

“We knew we had to put a lot of energy and positivity into the place and we have tried hard to do that and we knew that we wouldn’t be winning every week. The performances by and large have been good and we have been pleased with games that we have performed well but not got the results we would have liked. The performances will get us the results in the long run and we will carry on working hard and doing what we believe are the right things.”
