Bolu Fisher ‘couldn’t ask for a better team’ to be a part of as The Reds enjoy a fine run of results.
Nottingham Forest picked up their fifth consecutive win on Sunday afternoon with a 1-0 victory over Burnley and Fisher states that the winning run is a reflection of the hard work the team have been putting in on the training field.
“It honestly feels amazing to pick up another win and it’s great to keep the momentum of the team going,” Fisher said.
“Credit to every single person, from the staff behind the scenes to players both on and off the bench as it just shows that all the hard work we put into training is worth every second.”
The win saw The Reds end Burnley’s unbeaten start to the league campaign as they condemned The Clarets to their first defeat and Fisher was left impressed with her sides’ battling performance.
She said: “I was so impressed with the way everyone battled in the game, we were all doing our best to win the first and second balls which is what the gaffer always asks of us.
“Even those that came on as a substitute and those that didn’t they all played their parts in the win so I’m just so proud and happy for everyone.
“We all went out and put 100% in and it wasn’t easy especially when you’re the side that has to travel away, but not one of the girls let that effect their performance.”
After being side-lined at the start of the season through injury Fisher has fought back to earn a starting 11 spot and has been rewarded with two starts in the last two games by head coach Andy Cook. Fisher has impressed in her last two outings and she is ‘grateful’ for the faith intrusted in her by Cook.
“I’m just excited to be playing and I am so grateful that the gaffer is able to trust me enough to have started me the past two games,” Fisher explained.
“I’ve been working so hard on and off the pitch to become an individual player as well as a better team player so I’m over the moon it’s paying off and being recognised.
“With that being said the girls and all the staff make it easier with all their support and help they give in training so credit to them as well.”
The young attacker also found the back of the net for the first time in red against Hull City two weeks ago as she buried a penalty kick to help Forest to a 5-2 win and getting off the mark came as a ‘relief’ for her.
“It was an amazing feeling and also a relief because everyone wants to score goals especially as an attacker and a young one at that.
“It does linger in the back of your head to get that first goal but to get that out of the way is so helpful as now I feel as though there’s more to come.”
Fisher joined the club during the summer as she made the move from Tottenham Hotspur and she reflects back on her time as a Red and discusses the ‘family’ feel around the side.
“I really couldn’t be happier here, you don’t understand it until you see it and experience it but everyone is just so loving and caring here,” she expressed
“I think you can actually see that through little things, for example we all celebrate as a team.
“Everyone genuinely has your best interest at heart whether it’s in regard to football or not and they’re all willing to do what they can to help you achieve that.
“I can happily say this is the first team I’ve been at where it really does feel like a family and I have so much love for everyone involved in this team from players to staff. I really couldn’t ask for a better club.”
Looking ahead to this weekend’s game The Reds make the short trip across the city as they face Notts County development side in the Nottinghamshire County Cup and Fisher explains that Forest need to continue being themselves to ensure they pick up another victory.
“We just need to play our game and not let it get to our heads and just play the football that we’ve been playing and the football I know we can play.
“Doing that, I’m confident we’ll come away with another win.”
“Everyone’s done so well and put the hard work in so now we need to maintain that through the full 90 minutes of every single game.
“There really are no limits with this team! We’re full of surprises!”
