Daryl Murphy wants to see the Nottingham Forest supporters turn out in their numbers for the clash with Norwich City at The City Ground next weekend.

The Irishman says the international break has come at a good time for The Reds to recharge their batteries, but they are ready to get going again against The Canaries next Saturday.

He said: "The break has come at a nice time really, with the amount of games we have played to just recuperate, get ready and be fresh for the next one.

"We want to keep our home form going for as long as possible really, to make it a fortress at home and a horrible place for teams to come and play.

"It would be nice to see a packed ground. We don't have a game for a few weeks so the fans will want to come back and watch us as soon as possible. Hopefully they come out, as they always do, and we can sell it out."

Murphy has played a key role for The Reds so far this season, competing with Lewis Grabban for the starting spot up front. The frontman has hit four goals and wants to keep adding to his tally and contributing to the team.

"I think it has gone alright so far," he said. "I have played in some games, come on in some games, got a few decent results and scored a few goals so I can't complain really.

"We are on a bit of an unbeaten run which we would like to keep going but the main thing is that we are up there. We have played some decent teams and got some good results so confidence is high at the moment.

"I haven't set myself any targets. I just want to keep myself fit and play as many games as I can; if I do get the opportunities from the manager then I just want to do well and score goals to help the team. We are in the play-off positions now but we need everyone; we have a big squad and everyone will be used.

"There's no competition between us, but you want to finish as top scorer and I am sure Lewis is the same. We haven't spoken about it or anything, but I am sure it is in the back of his mind as well.

"The points are the most important thing though and if you can contribute to the team winning then that is just as good as scoring a goal."
