Andy Reid's message to Nottingham Forest's Championship rivals

The injured midfielder feels his side can beat 'anyone.'

Injured Nottingham Forest midfielder Andy Reid has sent out a warning to his side's Championship promotion rivals.

Indeed, the 32-year-old believes Stuart Pearce's men can beat 'anyone' - especially at the City Ground, where Forest's home support have helped pull them through during several tight matches already this season.

Forest recently ended a long winless streak by coming back from behind to beat Norwich City. And Reid feels that kind of spirit proves exactly what the promotion hopefuls are capable of.

"We believe that we can beat anyone, especially at home, and going into that game we knew we could beat Norwich," Reid wrote in the Nottingham Post.

"I've said before how vital it is for our fans to stick with us as much as possible though, and you did once again. You were absolutely fantastic. After we had gone 1-0 down you played a massive part in us getting the result against Norwich.

"If we feel that our supporters are behind us 100 per cent, then it gives us the belief that we can pull something out of the bag late on. That's not just my opinion; I think it's a fact.

"I can feel it when I'm out on the pitch and I know the lads can too. And we've shown that we can on several occasions so far this season: Fulham, Ipswich, Bournemouth – our supporters helped pull us through."
