Colback looking to blunt The Blades

18 April 2019

Jack Colback is expecting an intense atmosphere and contest at Bramall Lane as Nottingham Forest take on Sheffield United.

With The Blades pushing for automatic promotion, Colback knows it will be a difficult match for The Reds but he wants to go out there and get all three points for the fans.

He said: "Sheffield United will be a tough game. They have a unique style of play which is hard to deal with at times. We have to go out there and apply ourselves as professionals and try and win the game.

"It will be intense. They are going for the top two; they drew their last game so it is one they have to win. We have to set up right, deal with their threats and make the most of our time on the ball and what we can do with it going forward.

"It is important to try and finish with some momentum. At any stage of the season, you don't want to lose games. Even if it is the last game of the season with nothing to play for you don't want to lose the game, you want to win for the fans who have been there all season."

With the play-offs seemingly out of reach, Colback feels that Forest need to pick themselves up quickly for two big games over the Easter weekend as they look to end the campaign strongly.

He said: "We could have easily won the games that we haven't done. We had chances to win at Rotherham and then at Sheffield Wednesday we could have won 3-0 but end up getting beaten 3-0.

"That is the nature of the league; you have got to be right. The first goal is so important and it is something that we need to put right as quickly as possible.

"Of course, it is a bit flat after defeats and more so considering that we have fallen short of our target in getting to the play-offs. But you have to pick yourself up as quickly as you can, we have another game coming up tomorrow and another on Monday."
