Lamouchi looks ahead to Blackburn

31 December 2019

Nottingham Forest head coach Sabri Lamouchi wants to see the same result but a better performance from his side when they face Blackburn Rovers on New Year's Day.

The Reds battled to a 1-0 win against Wigan on Sunday, thanks to Tobias Figueiredo's goal and Brice Samba's penalty save, with Lamouchi acknowledging the fact that consistency is key in the Championship.

He said: "We just want to try and finish the game with the same result, three points in our pocket and to play in a different way.

"We have just two days, it is a busy time and if you see the results in the league, it is unbelievable. You must be consistent so to win two in a row is good, but we have to keep working.

"We need to rest, but not too much as we have another tough game."

Lamouchi is aware that The Reds' home form hasn't been as strong as it has been on the road, and he feels that maybe some movement in the transfer window could help strengthen their home record. 

He said: "This year, we have made some records away from home with a lot of wins, but at home it is the opposite. We need to understand this and to find out why, maybe it is the profile of the players and maybe the transfer window can help us.

"The club is working towards this, but until now the players are working hard, they are fantastic and it is a pleasure to work with them.

"Look at how many teams in front of us in the table lost the other day, it is not easy at home. We just need to be consistent, solid, focused and try to take the maximum points."
