Switching focus

30 October 2017

Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton says attentions must quickly turn to Tuesday night and a trip to face Reading after Saturday’s win at Hull City.

The Reds head to the Madejski Stadium on the back of a brilliant 3-2 win at the KCOM Stadium and Warburton is under no illusions that The Royals will provide his side with a tough test.

He said: "I thought it was a good display on Saturday and one that warranted the three points but there is no lack of respect or preparation for tomorrow night and we look forward to the challenge.

"There is no doubt they will be tough opposition. This game is so results driven; you have a good result away from home on Saturday and everyone is full of confidence, but the focus very quickly switches to Reading."

Warburton believes that Reading are in a false league position and knows that Jaap Stam's side will come out fighting tomorrow night.

"They are a team which are probably in an inappropriate league position," he said. "Their performances have warranted more points than they have secured and they will be fighting and scrapping like you cannot believe.

"We are well aware of the quality they possess throughout their team. They have a number of players who featured in the play-off final last year so they are not a bad team suddenly overnight.

"They have a good manager as well who did a fantastic job last year. We have no doubts about how organised they will be and how passionate they will be so we have to prepare well."
