Nottingham Forest midfielder Matty Cash said The Reds have to put the draw against Ipswich behind them if they are to push on for the play-offs.
The Reds were denied all three points after Daryl Murphy's goal was wrongly ruled out for offside and, while the decision was a frustrating one, Cash knows that they need to stay strong as a group.
Speaking after the game, he said: "It was a frustrating day. Obviously it was nice to be back on the pitch myself. I thought we played well in some patches and we were unlucky as the referee's decision has cost us. We have watched it back and it was not offside.
"We came here to try and get the three points. Unfortunately we didn't, we picked up a point and we have to move into the next game, regroup and stay strong together.
"We are still three points off the play-offs. It is frustrating as we are so close and we just want to get as many points as possible. We have got to kick on and anything can happen in these last eight games."
The Reds head into the international break now and Cash feels it will be a good chance for him to build his own fitness and also for the squad to recharge their batteries ahead of the run in.
"We have just got to keep working," he said. "We have the break now so we just have to come back refreshed.
"A lot of the lads have played a lot of minutes so it will be good to have a nice break in, refresh the legs and come back really fresh for the last few games.
"These last few games are so important; we are all fighting so we have got to keep going."
