Warburton relishing Reds' reinvigoration

18 March 2017

Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton is desperate to hit the ground running with victory in the East Midlands derby at The City Ground this afternoon.

Warburton and his assistant manager David Weir have experienced a whirlwind few days since joining the club but are now looking forward to getting stuck in against Gary Rowett's Derby County for their first match in charge.

Warburton said: "We are well aware of the significance of the game. It is a huge local derby, both teams have made managerial changes, and it is huge for the fans. Our job now is to come in and deliver a performance."

Weir agreed and added: "I have been involved in Merseyside, Old Firm and Edinburgh derbies. They hurt when you lose and there is ecstasy when you win. We have got to make sure that we fight to ensure it does go our way and that is the spirit we have to instil in these players."

Read the full interview with Mark and David in this afternoon's Forest Review as they discuss their first few days at The City Ground, their targets for the rest of the season and what they feel they can bring to the club.

The programme also features the thoughts of defender Armand Traore and former Forest and Derby midfielder John McGovern, the lowdown on the visitors from Pride Park and regular columnists Danny Taylor, David Marples and Richard Harrison. 

The 76-page edition of Forest Review costs just £3 and is available from sellers around The City Ground before kick-off, or you can purchase the e-edition here:
