Top Ten Tests of Forest's Resolve

The Scot saw his side slip up at the City Ground once again on Saturday afternoon, Bristol City coming away with a 2-1 victory.

Speaking to the official club website afterwards, Freedman felt the Reds had played well for the first hour but added: in the end we didn’t make the right decisions in front of goal and we lost our discipline trying to chase the game because we couldn’t mark at a set piece.”

Calling it a ‘difficult moment’ for his team, the Forest manager knows that things could get even tougher as they now face a busy schedule of fixtures against four sides who are currently in the top ten of the Championship.

An away game at Ipswich on Saturday is followed by home matches against Preston North End and Sheffield Wednesday and a trip to Hull City.

The Reds are equally distant from both the play-off places and the relegation zone (13 points) but at the moment it is over their shoulder that supporters are looking.
