Apologies, this video is unvailable.

Joe Lolley says he is eager to make his debut for Nottingham Forest at Fulham tomorrow but knows there is stiff competition for places.

The winger signed on transfer deadline day but he knows that the whole squad will have to play their part for The Reds.

He said: "Any player wants to play but it is up to the manager to choose what he thinks is his best eleven.

"Everyone in the squad will have their part to play, everyone will want to play and that is why I have come here.

"Like any player, I always give everything I have got and work as hard as I can. I am fast and direct and hopefully I can score some goals."

The 25-year-old signed from Huddersfield Town and feels he is settling in well to life at The City Ground.

"The lads are all really welcoming and all seem like good guys," he said. "I am looking forward to getting to know them more.

"It was like the first day at school! I didn't know anyone and it made it easier that there were so many new faces, so everyone was in the same boat.

"It was a bit of a nervous day but I am glad that the first day is over and I can look forward to the days and months ahead."

Fulham provide the first test for Lolley in the Garibaldi red and he is expecting a tough match at Craven Cottage.

He said: "They are a good team, they like the ball and like to attack. They are one of the better teams in the Championship in terms of passing and playing that style of football.

"But the lads have said that they seem to thrive on the bigger games, like Wolves a couple of weeks ago, so we are looking forward to the test."
