Targeting a strong finish

29 March 2018

Jack Colback wants Nottingham Forest to finish the season as strongly as possible as they prepare for the Good Friday trip to Millwall.

After the two-week international break, The Reds return to action at The Den and Colback knows that the team will be professional in every match as they seek a positive end to the campaign.

He said: "We are going to try and win as many games as we can and finish as high as we can in the league. We are in a position at the moment where we aren't in and around the play-offs and we seem pretty safe from relegation.

"It is about being professional; the manager wants to win every game and he keeps thing positive. We have been playing well recently; the three draws we have had in a row could have easily been wins but we haven't taken our chances.

"As a group, the mood is really good. We are positive, taking each game as it comes and trying to win each one."

The Den is renowned for being a hostile environment for visiting teams and Colback, who has yet to play away at Millwall, is looking forward to getting stuck into the occasion.

"I've not been before," he said. "It is my first time going there so I am looking forward to it.

"I moved to Newcastle as a Sunderland player so I am used to things like that! As a player and as a team it is something that you deal with but it is not something we are focusing on. We are looking at Millwall and what they can do and how we can win the game.

"Millwall is another test, but every game at this level is a tough game and a battle. Even if you are playing the bottom sides it will be a hard slog. We are playing well so we focus on ourselves and we will try and win every game."
