We are more than capable

8 September 2017

Nottingham Forest defender Joe Worrall said The Reds need to show what they are capable of when they travel to Hillsborough tomorrow.

Forest suffered defeat against Leeds United in their last outing before the international break and Worrall knows that the team will be need to be at their best to get a result against Sheffield Wednesday.

He said: "There are a lot of teams that have got off to good starts and some that haven't but you can't read too much into it. We just need to put in a good away performance and get the three points.

"We are more than capable of doing it and if we carry on like we did against Middlesbrough and before that we are more than capable of getting a result."

He added: "I was 16 or 17 when I first travelled with the squad to Hillsborough. I wasn't in the 18 but that was a great experience for me and I will be looking to get a shirt and play at the ground.

"It will be a tough game, they have a lot of good players and a good manager as we would be silly to underestimate them. We just need to go there and show what we are all about."

Worrall was one of ten Forest players to be called up to represent their countries during the break and, although he didn't get any game time with England Under 21s, he said it was a very proud moment.

"It is an honour to be called up to the Under 21s and it is a big achievement," he said. "I am very proud of it and my family are as well. Obviously I didn't get any minutes on the pitch but to just train with that calibre of player and Gareth Southgate came to watch some of the training sessions.

"To be around it all was a bit surreal but it is what you want from being a young lad growing up. It has been a crazy year for me and I am just riding the rollercoaster, putting in the effort and reaping the rewards."
