Freedman makes an admission over his style at Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest Stadium Night

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman has commented on the style he's currently looking for at the club.

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman admitted on Forest Player that his style of play can sometimes be a risk.

Forest are on a high ahead of their game against Charlton this evening and Freedman feels it’s an exciting time to watch his team play.

Hopefully the Scot can oversee another victory, which helps Forest move into a better position on the Championship table.

“I think that’s a given. We all work very hard and people pay their money to watch us and they work very hard as well – It’s going to be a risk sometimes playing the way I want to do, but I think the rewards are going to be better than just hitting the ball long,” he told Forest Player.

A fine balance

It’s important that Forest find the right balance in terms of being able to take risks and shut up shop, with a determined defence.

Forest’s side is geared towards having some very talented players driving the midfield and attack forward, but it’s arguably more important for the team to focus on keeping a high number of clean sheets.

One of the areas that Freedman will be working with the club’s younger players is their discipline and ensuring that they do hard work off the ball, as much as they are in possession, on the front foot and attacking.

Hopefully Freedman’s prediction that his risky style will create more good times than bad, will leave Forest in a position where promotion is possible towards the end of the football year.
