A chance to build

Nottingham Forest manager Aitor Karanka believes his side have a chance to build some momentum as they get set to welcome Rotherham to The City Ground on the weekend.

The Reds have put in two good performances this week in the draw at Swansea and victory over Sheffield Wednesday and Karanka wants more of the same on Saturday.

He said: "We have a good chance to build a run but not just because it is Rotherham as I consider them to be a very good team. Some can think that because they are a newly-promoted team it will be easy, but it will be very difficult.

"If we go to the pitch thinking it will be easy because we played well in the last two games, we need to play at least in the way we have played in the last two games because they got promotion last season, they have a good manager and for sure they will be hungry.

"They will want to win the game, they have started the season really well so we need to go to the pitch knowing that it will be a tough game against a tough opponent.

"But I don't care about the opponents, I care about us, about our intensity, the first 30 seconds and the last 15 minutes if we are defending and attacking well.

"It is about us, especially when we play at home. If we play our style, I don't care as we have the quality on the pitch and on the bench. If we play in our style we will be fine."
