Nottingham Forest forward Daryl Murphy believes that the fans have an influential role in helping The Reds pick up all three points against Hull City tomorrow.

With another packed City Ground, Murphy knows the fans can be the difference in getting a positive result, as they were against Derby County last week, and he is hoping for more of the same tomorrow.

He said: "It will be a tough game because they are in good form and are level on points with us in the league. If you look at the table, it is so tight; it is goal difference and they are coming into this game full of confidence.

"But we are the home team. You saw what we did in the last home game with the crowd behind us and I think that can be the difference for us.

"With that kind of crowd, a full stadium and you saw the atmosphere last time. Hopefully they can do that again."

He added: "I don't think the fans realise how big a factor they play in our performances because they give us such a boost. It gives everyone a boost and the whole place has been hopping all season really.

"I think they can help now more so than ever because we know how important the games are and the fans realise that as well. If they can help us, then brilliant.

"They are turning up in their numbers and we wouldn't expect anything less as they have been like it all season, even away from home. They have come out in their numbers and cheered us on and that won't change between now and the end of the season.

"Hopefully, we can keep it rocking and get the three points. I think the fans believe in us more because everyone is excited about what the future holds as we are that close.

"If we get a few wins together, and I mean back-to-back wins, that can give us a big boost. If you look at the table and you can get those wins, that is six points and that is massive at this stage of the season so that is what we are looking to do."
