Keeping perspective

Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton says his side must keep perspective ahead of Saturday’s game against Queens Park Rangers.

The Reds suffered defeat at Reading on Tuesday after the win at Hull last weekend and Warburton knows his side, whether it is a win or a defeat, will not get carried away with their results.

He said: "Tuesday was particularly frustrating as we had a very good performance at Hull. We started very slowly on Tuesday and there is no reason why, everyone is human and we have to look at it and see what we can do better. We look at the performance indicators which could show something behind the slow starts.

"But we saw the second half reaction against a team that normally has around 65 per cent possession and we dominated the football. We were on top but we found ourselves 3-0 down through a combination of sloppy play and not being able to take our chances.

"You have to appreciate everyone is human, they will have bad days at the office. You can't be too high when you win and you can't be too low when you lose, nothing is achieved by that."

The Forest boss is expecting a tough challenge against The Rs but is determined to pick up a positive result heading into the upcoming international break.

He said: "They come here off the back of two very good results, having beaten two sides flying high in the top six. They will be confident and Ian Holloway will have them ready and organised and they have several good individuals in the team.

"We have to prepare well and go into the game knowing that. We have respect for them but it is a game going into the international break and everyone will be keen to go into that off the back of a good performance."
