Nottingham Forest head coach Sabri Lamouchi knows his side must be focused as they prepare to face Luton Town on Sunday.

The Reds face a Luton side struggling for form but Lamouchi knows that could be a trap and that Forest must be on top of their game to get the result.

He said: “We need to focus on our performance. It is a trap game; it will not be an easy game, for sure, so we have to be careful.

“They have some good players, they will have a reaction so it will be a tough game. It is not easy to play a team that is fighting to stay in the league, so we need to play our football and produce a big performance.

“We are in a good moment, at home and away. The players are working well, there is a nice atmosphere so we just want to take care to put the right pressure and focus on our job in the next game, and only think about the Luton game.”

With a big crowd expected on Trentside for the game, Lamouchi praised the fantastic support and stressed how important the fans can be in getting the victory.

He said: “We are at home, probably with a lot of people. We need them; it is a crucial time for them, for us, for the club and we want to enjoy this all together.

“The most important thing is to think only about the first game. We play Luton at home, it will not be an easy game, it will be very tough because they need points. They will come to defend well and to try and play on the counter-attack and disturb us on the set pieces.

“We need to play as we know, with a big determination as at home, we are doing well in this moment and we want to stay in this way.

“We need the full support, to feel this nice atmosphere because the players are doing well and we need this. The fans know this and we want to share these emotions together.

“Of course, the fans can make a difference. Our fans, I said six months ago but after six months I am still surprised by the passion and love they have for the club, for the team. They want to dream and this is just fantastic for us, to try to make them proud. It is really important because at Reading, there were big numbers and there will be big numbers at The City Ground too and that is important for the players.”
