Ward Full Of Praise For Forest

The central defender was a regular for Forest last season as Billy Davies' guided them to an unlikely shot at the play-off places before making a summer move to Saturday's opponents Bournemouth.

Speaking to the Daily Echo he praised the atmosphere at the City Ground when results were going well ('the place was rocking') and also the impact Davies made in his second spell as manager ('his impact really pushed us on').

Bourneouth have made an excellent start to life in the Championship under Eddie Howe and come to Nottingham just outside the play-off positions.
