Passion on the pitch and in the stands

24 February 2019

Alex Milosevic is eager to get his first taste of the East Midlands derby when Nottingham Forest take on Derby on Monday night.

The Swedish defender is aware of the significance of the game and is determined to get the victory for the supporters.

He said: "Of course, it would be everything to get the win for the fans. They have been creating a great atmosphere at home and away but it is also up to us. We have to give them something to shout about on the pitch. We need to win our duels, put tackles in and score goals and give all our passion on the pitch.

"What I have heard from everyone at the club since I came here is that, when we talk about football, it always seems to come to this game. It is a big game for the club, for the fans and everything and we can only do our best to take the three points.

"I have been told about it by not just my teammates but also people around the city. The game against Derby is the biggest one. Of course, we want to take three points in every game but this one is special.

"I have played in quite a few derbies in Sweden, the last one I played in was with 50,000 people so there is big pressure in Sweden when you play in these derbies. For me, I have experienced these big games so I don't feel the pressure or nerves, I only feel excited for these games."

Milosevic was speaking for an interview in Forest Review and you can read the full version in Monday night's edition of the matchday programme.
