Lewis Grabban said Nottingham Forest have to get back to winning ways next week after they started the season with defeat against Queens Park Rangers.
The striker missed a couple of clear-cut chances to get Forest at least a point but the opportunities went begging and Grabban knows that The Reds must get that feeling of winning games back.
Speaking after the match, he said: “It is important to get that winning feeling back. Last season is last season for me, we have to move on, we need to start doing our job this season and win games.
“I am disappointed, I would have liked to have scored at least one today. It was a tough day all round, not the start we wanted to get.
“There are some positives in there amongst some negatives but we go to the next game to try and rectify that and do better next week.”
The Reds picked up their performance after going a goal behind against QPR and Grabban said they must play to that standard from the first whistle.
He said: “We want to build on a good start ourselves and try and get a goal ourselves. We were disappointed with the two goals and hopefully we can stop those mistakes.
“It is a big thing for us, we need to keep that intensity and put in a good performance from the start to the end. We need to try and establish that more often so we can dominate games and control games.
“If we can try and take that second half into the beginning and throughout the whole game next week then we should be fine.”
