Another good challenge

27 November 2020

Nottingham Forest manager Chris Hughton said The Reds are looking forward to the challenge posed by Swansea City on Sunday.

Forest are keen to make amends following successive away defeats and Hughton believes a test against one of the league’s in-form teams will be a good marker for his side.

He said: “They have been a good team in this division for a while now, they have got used to it with whatever manager and they have played in different ways and different formations.

“They are in good form and we have to look at it as another good challenge. We did that going into the Bournemouth game, it was a game that everybody looked forward to and I sense the same again.

“We are on the back of two defeats and when that is the case, you want to put things right. This is the next opportunity that we have, it is at home and we have got to make the very most of it.”

Forest are back in action at The City Ground after two away matches, and having won the previous two matches on Trentside before the international break, Hughton is keen to continue the good results at home.

He said: “It is almost strange saying it as it is without supporters, but at home you have got to try and make it a bit like a fortress.

“In what is a normal season, you are generally going to pick up more points at home than away from home, so what we would like is good performances, whether at home or away.

“These are our next games and we have to try and make the most of it.”
