Nottingham Forest striker Lewis Grabban is ready and raring to go as The Reds get set to face his former club Millwall on Friday night.

After two long away trips to Cardiff and Middlesbrough, Grabban said all the focus is on getting the three points at The City Ground as the season heads towards the climax.

He said: “With the situation that we are in, we have 10 games to go and we have to put everything into them and see what happens. We have to improve on the last performance and try and do what we had been doing previous to that.

“If we can get as many wins as possible, we will see where it takes us but the main thing is to refocus for Friday and put on a good performance, one more solid than we did on Monday night.

“It will be tough and Millwall are doing well this year. They are playing a different style to what they normally play, they have a new tactical system with the new manager but we are prepared for that and hopefully we can get the win.”

Grabban notched his 17th goal of the season at Middlesbrough on Monday night, a goal which ended a run of six games without one, but the frontman was happy with his overall contribution to the team.

“It was nice to get back on the scoresheet,” he said. “A lot of stuff is made out of when strikers don’t score but it is just one of those things. You can’t score every game but I was pleased to get back on the scoresheet.

“The main thing, as I always say, is that we need to be winning games, it doesn’t matter if I am scoring and we can try and complete our goals this season.

“It doesn’t play on my mind, not at all, if I am not scoring. I still have other things that I need to do in the game as a striker, I still need to play the game and the icing on the cake is getting goals but I have to contribute in other ways.

“Forwards know that you will have dry patches and if you let that affect you too much, you will never get back on the trail.”
