We want to keep this feeling

Nottingham Forest defender Joe Worrall is keeping his feet firmly on the ground despite The Reds climbing to the top of the Championship table.

The 3-2 victory over Stoke City last night saw Forest climb to the summit and although he acknowledges his delight at seeing Forest on top, he knows there is plenty of work still to do.

Speaking after the game, he said: “It feels very good, we are over the moon but the manager has let us know straight away not to get carried away. It is something that will be stamped out quickly if we do, but you can’t ignore the fact that you’re top of the league, no matter how long it is for you are up there. It is a great start by us and long may it continue.

“For me, to be playing for my club and be top of the league is class. It is a really good feeling and something that I want to keep doing, We know we may not be top for long or may not be top again this season, but it is nice to savour the moment.

“We want that feeling again, we want to keep playing well and we can’t let up now. Look at how many games we have got left, there is no point in blowing your own trumpet, we need to crack on.

“We have Blackburn next and the manager tells us every single day to forget about the last game, he sets us little targets on the way to look at and that suits me and suits us fine.”

Worrall believes that Forest have a united squad all pulling in the same direction, something which can only help the team achieve positive results.

“We are a confident group of players,” he said. “We have loads of experience and a good mix of youth as well which is important to have in the team. We are all on the same page which is something that has got us where we are at the moment.

“We are all digging in for each other, we run around a lot and try hard and that is the basics of football, something we are doing really well and pivotal to the way we are getting results now.”
