Nottingham Forest head coach Sabri Lamouchi knows his side must keep working and improving as they prepare to head to Millwall on Friday night.
The Reds tasted defeat last weekend against Cardiff and Lamouchi is ready for another tough contest at The Den in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
He said: “We must be positive and keep working as we are in the right way. Sometimes we are unlucky or we miss the last touch, and we need to work and improve. The commitment and attitude from the players is there.
“I have heard many things about Millwall, I know they have good players and the manager there has a good team.
“It will be a tough game for us but in the Championship I have learned every game. Against Millwall, I will learn about the intensity, the attitude, the commitment but all games in this league are tough at home and away. We have played 18 games and number 19 will be tough like the others.”
This fixture is the first in a busy schedule across December and the New Year, a period in which Lamouchi knows he will have to manage well.
He said: “We have to focus game after game, I do not have another plan. I will put the best line-up for each game.
“Millwall is the first game, we must take points and we go there to play and try and disturb them. Then we have Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday and they are not easy.
“We start the most important time in the Championship, from December to February and we will see where we will be after a few games.”
