The right approach

Nottingham Forest manager Aitor Karanka said his side must approach tomorrow’s game against Millwall in the right way in order to come away with a result.

The trip to The Den last season saw Karanka leave frustrated with his side after a poor start to the match and he doesn't want a repeat of that this time around.

He said: "I said it when we played against them earlier in the season, that the example of the game last season was a good one for us. If you don't approach the game in the right way, you can lose easily.

"This season they are not as good as they were last season, but their style is the same and they are still hungry and aggressive. They know their style and they are strong in that style so we need to approach the game knowing it will be a tough game.

"If we don't approach it as aggressive as them or as intense as them, we will have problems like we did last season."

With tomorrow's match being the third game in a week, Karanka is still checking on the fitness of his players.

He said: "We need to play our style and our intensity. I need to check how the players are, even now, with the game on Wednesday. It wasn't just how much they ran it was the emotions of it as in those games, you feel more tired than in a normal game.

"I need to check with them. It was frustrating after the game after they put everything on the pitch and you lose the three points at the end."
