From the opposition

Gary Rowett is aware of the threats posed by Nottingham Forest ahead of the clash at The Den on Friday night.


He said: “I think they’re a good side, they’ve got lots of good forward players. They have lots of other good players but I think particularly in forward areas they’ve got the ability to win games and open you up.

“At home they play slightly differently to away from home. Away from home they tend to defend very deep and be very tactically organised. Lamouchi has proved that he’s a very good coach.

“They’re a very good side on the transition and counter-attack so we have to be mindful of that. We’re going to have to be wary of what they’re going to try and do and make sure we don’t open up too many spaces too early in the game.

“But, we’re at home and we’ll have to take some gambles in certain areas, play with the tempo we want to play with. It’s up to us to make the running to try and win the game.”
