Nottingham Forest midfielder Joe Lolley believes that it will take a whole team effort for The Reds to bounce back against Reading tomorrow afternoon.
Forest go in search of all three points at The City Ground as they aim to keep up with the teams at the top of the table following back-to-back defeats.
Lolley said: “As a team we have lost the last two games; I don’t think that is down to me or any individuals, it is down to us as a team. Before the international break I think I found my best form of the season, the Stoke, Blackburn and Brentford games were, for me, three good performances.
“As an individual and as a team, we are frustrated with the last two games and if I look at those games, I haven’t been at the level I want to be at, but it is just two games and as a team, we all think the same.”
The Reds go into the game just outside the play-off positions but only two points away from the automatic promotion spots. The tight league table means that the finest of margins can make a big difference.
“If you had asked the majority of people if they would have been happy to be in this position, looking at the table after this many games, they would have said yes,” Lolley said.
“We had a new manager into pre-season, new players and it is not a bad position to be in. We are two points off second, four points off top and next to the play-offs.
“All is forgotten quickly if we bounce back with a few results and that is football.”
