Nottingham Forest defender Jack Robinson is expecting another tough test when his side come up against Cardiff City on Saturday.

The Reds have only lost once at home since the opening day of the season and Robinson is hoping they can continue that rich vein of form at The City Ground.

Speaking ahead of the game, he said: “It will probably be a tough game as it always is against Cardiff. They're a good team who are solid. I think it’s going to be a very tough afternoon, but I think if we carry on playing how we have been doing over the last five or six weeks, I think we can get the result.

“Especially with it being at home I think we’re more than solid at home so we're just going out looking for those three points again.”

Following the arrival of Yuri Ribeiro in the summer, Robinson has relished the competition between the pair so far this term and also insists that the Portuguese has made him want improve as a player. 

He said: “It’s good competition. Especially because last year I was probably the only left-back. Benny [Ben Osborn] played there a few times but I think he was predominately more of a central midfielder or a winger.

“So I think it’s good to have that competition. Yuri’s a good lad. A good player who works very hard so especially for me, it kicks me on and makes me want to improve and to cement my place in the team again.”

Robinson was also pleased to see Matty Cash sign a contract extension on Thursday and he believes that the 22-year-old has worked hard to get that new deal.

He said: “Cashy is one of my best mates in the team so really happy for him. I'm made up he’s signed a new deal as well so that’s really good for him.

“He has been brilliant. He’s solid and he has worked hard at his game. It has not just fell for him, he has worked hard in training.

“I think the manager spoke to him a fair few times to help him improve in that position, but he has done exceptionally well. He keeps improving week-in week-out.”
