Freedman explains how Forest will approach final week of season

Nottingham Forest Stands

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman is taking a sensible approach to the club's final game of the season.

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman explained on Forest Player how he will be approaching the club’s final week of the season.

Forest take on Cardiff in their final game this weekend before a long break over three months before the 2015/2016 campaign gets underway.

Freedman has a number of areas he needs to work on this summer, but he’s not getting too ahead of himself and wants his squad to be professional in their approach to the final game.

“Yes it is (business as usual). It’s not in my nature to look too far ahead – First and foremost we’ll be planning to beat Cardiff,” said the boss.

“We need to make sure that even if we don’t perform well, we come out of it with the right result – The balance has probably just been tipped too much towards performances instead of getting results.”

It’s very important the club ends the season well because momentum is important, despite the long wait before the next competitive game.

It will create positive feeling among the squad, the manager and the fans, which they need to try and take forward.

Freedman will have to review the squad and work hard to make the right changes, the squad need to rest in the right way and the fans will wait eagerly for pre-season and news of any transfer deals.

Forest and Cardiff are on exactly the same number of points as things stand and the first objective will be to ensure that the side finishes higher in the table than the Welsh side.
