Lichaj suggests what he expects to happen in every single Forest game

Nottingham Forest defender Eric Lichaj has expected what he expects from the side's attack in every game.

Nottingham Forest defender Eric Lichaj told Forest Player that he always expects the team to score in each game.

Forest played well to see off Rotherham earlier this week and face a big challenge against Norwich in their next game.

It will be a difficult test but the defender feels that if the side do their basic defensive duties, there is enough firepower in the team to pull through and win any game.

“With the back four and Darlow as well, we're doing quite well. We haven't conceded in the last two games and we just need to keep that going,” said the American.

“If we don't concede we're at least getting a point out of a game. I would say that with the attacking threat we have, we will always get a goal or two.”

Forest have an extremely talented midfielder and attack, which has allowed the team to cope without the injured Britt Assombalonga up front.

It will be interesting to see how the side plays against the sides above them in the table and whether those teams have clever tactical ways of keeping Forest’s key players out of action.

Rotherham struggled to deal with the talent of Michail Antonio earlier this week and it will be interesting to see if he stays as the main man through which the Forest attacking play flows with Assombalonga unavailable.

Dougie Freedman needs to keep everyone fresh and effective for the attack to stay at its very best and the same goes for the defence.

It’s a common sense and very simple way of thinking about the rest of the season but clean sheets will make the job for Forest’s attack easier.
