Davies- Lewis has a long way to go yet

Last updated : 25 October 2010

Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies has warned Lewis McGugan not to get carried away by his rich vein of goalscoring form.

McGugan fired a spectacular 35-yard free-kick into the top corner to help the Reds to a 2-0 win over Ipswich on Saturday, taking his tally to seven goals in eight games this season. But Davies has told the midfielder he still has much work to do on his all-round game.

"I have told him to keep his feet on the ground because he still has a long way to go," said the Scot. "In the last few days I have seen a picture of McGugan a year ago and a picture of him now and the difference is remarkable, with regards to his body shape and conditioning.

"He is now getting the rewards for the hard work he has put in but he has to keep working, he cannot get carried away. He has a long way to go yet. Yes, he has scored some goals but there are areas in his game that he still has to get better. He has to keep working on his conditioning and fitness."
