Nottingham Forest’s Kelvin Wilson: Next season will be ‘promising’ for us on one condition

Forest City Ground

Nottingham Forest will aim to finish in the top six of the Championship next season.

Nottingham Forest defender Kelvin Wilson has told the club’s official website that next season will be “promising” as long as the key players are fit.

The Reds ended the 2014-15 campaign in a disappointing 14th place in the Championship with 59 points from 46 matches.

However, Wilson believes that next season will be better as long as there are not too many injuries.

“I think it’s going to be a promising season as long as we can keep everyone fit, which has been a problem since I’ve been here – for myself and other players,” the 29-year-old told Forest’s official website prior to today’s Championship game against Cardiff City at the City Ground.

“If we’ve got a fit squad I think it’s in our own hands to be honest. It’s probably the best squad I’ve played in at Nottingham Forest, in my first and second spell. The quality is brilliant all around the changing room.”

Wilson seems to be confident of a successful 2015-16 campaign with Forest, but a lot of work needs to be done in the summer transfer window.

With Forest under a transfer embargo, they will not be able to spend money like they have done in previous years.

There is also the concern that the best players could be taken away from Forest, and then there is the small matter of finding their replacements while working under a budget.

However, once manager Dougie Freedman gets everything in place and the players have a good pre-season, then the prospects will look much better.
