Get the job done

5 May 2018

Nottingham Forest defender Danny Fox knows what the Bolton players must be going through as they get set for the clash at the Macron Stadium on Sunday.

The Reds would send Bolton down with a victory in the final game of the season and Fox knows that they must remain professional and get the three points regardless of what is at stake for The Trotters.

He said: "We were in the same situation last year, I was injured unfortunately and it was worse watching than playing as I couldn't have any bearing on the game or help.

"They will know what is at stake. The Championship is a massive league and League One is a very difficult league to get out of, as they know from last year.

"It will be an intense game but we want to go into it, finish on a high with a win and I am sure the gaffer will be telling us that tomorrow, as he has done all week, and these next two days he will be ramming it down our necks.

"We need to prepare properly. I think there is over 2,000 fans making the trip for the game so it will be nice to send them home happy as it is not a short journey."

Fox admitted that inconsistency has been the main problem for The Reds this season but hopes that they can end the season on a positive note against Bolton.

"It has been an inconsistent season," he said. "We have shown in fits and starts how good a team we can be, especially against teams which are doing well in the league.

"But we have let our standards drop on numerous occasions and that is why we are where we are in the league. We need to become more consistent if we want to challenge in the top half and towards the play-offs.

"We have been inconsistent but we want to finish on a high note. We play against Bolton who are playing for Championship status on Sunday. It is going to be a tough game, they are going to be right at it and the crowd will be behind them so we know we will have to be at it to get the result we want."
