Putting on a show for the fans

27 April 2018

Nottingham Forest midfielder Ben Osborn is hoping to give the fans something to cheer about in the final home game of the season against Bristol City tomorrow.

The Reds end the season at The City Ground with a visit from The Robins before the final game next weekend and Osborn wants to get a win for them.

He said: "The fans have been unbelievable this year attendances wise so we are expecting a big crowd again tomorrow.

"Hopefully we can put on a bit of a show for them, score a few goals and put in a performance like we did against Barnsley.

"Obviously Bristol City will provide a sterner test for us as they are fighting for the play-offs, but it should be a good game and hopefully an entertaining one.

"With the position we are in, we can go for it a bit more but without being stupid. We have got to respect the opposition but in these last two games we can try different things, get people forward and hopefully we can get two wins."

Overall, Osborn has been left disappointed with how the season has panned out on a personal level and from the team perspective.

"Although I have featured consistently, I am a bit disappointed as we are at the wrong end of the table from where I thought I would be," he said.

"I thought it could have been a year where I really kicked on, but a lot of stuff has happened at the club and I have tried to do a job for the team wherever I have played.

"I want to cement a place in the midfield next season as that is where I feel that I play my best football.

"If you look back at last season, we were fighting relegation until the last day of the season so there has been a slight improvement. We have progressed and if you do that every year it will get better and better.

"If we can finish the next few games with wins then we can finish around 14th and if you look at last season, it is not too bad.

"We have got to start looking to next year, start looking to build the chemistry together of the players that are going to be here.

"We want to finish as strongly as possible and get the right culture in training and at the club so that everyone buys into the same thing.

"If we can finish the last two games well and give the fans something to shout about it will be a positive note to end the season on."
