Nottingham Forest forward Leo Bonatini says the fans have done their bit and now the players need to do theirs on the pitch on Saturday against Hull City.

The Championship clash at The City Ground is heading for a sell-out and Bonatini believes that the brilliant support can help drive The Reds on.

He said: "We want to win all of our games. We know it is hard and a tough competition and we know how big this club is and how important it is to win at home. We want to bounce back to win and use the home factor as an advantage.

"The fans were amazing against Derby and they helped us. It is always helpful to have them on our side. I played here against Nottingham Forest last season and I know how hard it is to play against them here, so we need to make this happen all the time.

"The fans are coming so now it is up to us to win the game. We need to respect Hull City, of course, but we will try to win the game."

The Brazilian forward, who is on loan for the remainder of the season from Wolves, is enjoying life so far on Trentside and is eager for more minutes on the pitch.

"I am really enjoying the club," he said. "I like the city and my family are happy here, so it is a pleasure to be here.

"It is a pleasure for me to work with Martin and Roy. They are people with great history at this club and I am trying to learn from them to put into my work. We are working in the right way and I am just trying to improve myself every day to help my teammates.

"I have played 45 minutes here at The City Ground which was good for me. We played Brentford, it was a tough game and I think that as I have got some minutes now I am feeling better and fresh."
