Fox: The fans make a massive difference

22 August 2018

Nottingham Forest defender Danny Fox says that the fans have a big part to play in helping The Reds achieve success this season.

The defender has been a key figure at the heart of Aitor Karanka's defence and he knows that with the fans' backing, Forest can do well in the Championship this season.

He hopes to see similar levels of support at The City Ground on Saturday when The Reds take on Birmingham City (kick-off 5.30pm).

He said: "The fans are obviously brilliant. The first two home games of the season they turned out in their numbers, even though the first one against West Brom was on Sky. It was near enough a sell-out and Reading was similar so hopefully it will be the same again on Saturday.

"They do make a massive difference when they get behind the team, but that starts from us. We need to give them something to cheer about and something to be optimistic about.

"We are all looking forward to every game, even away from home. Against Wigan they were different class and there was around 2,500 of them spurring us on until the last minute and that was the driving force. I didn't hear much from the Wigan fans and it does work, it helps the team to keep going when we aren't playing particularly well so long may that continue.

"We are very grateful to them as we know it isn't cheap to come and watch football matches and we do appreciate them turning out in their numbers every week, home and away."

Danny was speaking exclusively to Forest Review ahead of the match on Saturday. Make sure you pick up your copy to read the full interview.
