We have belief

29 September 2017

Liam Bridcutt said the Nottingham Forest squad have belief that things will click into place sooner rather than later.

The midfielder added that confidence is still high in the dressing room and that they feel the results will soon start matching the performances.

He said: "We know that we have hit a patch where we haven't won in a few games but the confidence among the lads is still high. With the manager and everything he is doing on the training pitch and the confidence he is instilling in the team, it has given the boys that lift to keep believing in what we are doing.

"The manager has been fantastic for us. He has given us that freedom to go and play. We all know that individually we are good players and as a team we are showing we are getting better in every game. The confidence is not going to be a problem. The style of play allows us that freedom to enjoy ourselves and showcase what we want to do.

"It is a matter of time. Once it clicks we will have that extra belief to go on and beat teams. We have shown that in some of the performances already that we can be one of the best teams in the league.

"For me, it is just teething problems; we have had a lot of new players come in and it is going in the right direction. There are no problems or panic and it is about believing in what we are doing."

Sheffield United visit The City Ground tomorrow and Bridcutt is aware of the threat they pose and knows that The Reds will need to deal with the pressure of the game.

He said: "Every game is a tough game in the Championship. We showed against Fulham, probably one of the best sides in the league, that we dominated the game for large periods. It was just unlucky that we couldn't finish off the chances and there were a couple of sloppy mistakes to concede.

"They are a team that has come up full of confidence and as a group they have been together for a while. They are a strong unit and look a tough team. Every team will want to beat us but that is the pressure of the game and we have to deal with it."
