Nottingham Forest’s Henri Lansbury makes a confident claim

Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury is in confident mood despite his side’s recent disappointing results of late.

Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury has told the club’s official website that his side will start picking up positive results sooner rather than later.

Forest are 14th in the Championship table at the moment with 12 points from 10 matches and are as many as six points behind sixth-place Burnley.

The Reds have been inconsistent so far this season and suffered a 1-0 defeat to promotion hopefuls Hull City at the City Ground in the Championship on Saturday.

Dougie Freedman’s team have not won in the league since Tuesday, September 15, but midfielder Lansbury believes that their luck will change soon.

“We were all over them (Hull) and that was the idea, to start pressuring them early and high up the pitch,” the 24-year-old told Forest’s official website.

“We did that and created chances for ourselves, we just didn’t take them. If we buy into what the gaffer is saying and keep performing like we’ve been performing, our luck has got to change.”

Forest’s performances so far this season have been encouraging, and they have actually played like a team rather than like a bunch of players relying on one brilliant individual.

The departure of star winger Michail Antonio to Premier League outfit West Ham United in the summer transfer window does not seem to have affected the Reds’ too much.

However, for Forest to maintain their chances of finishing in the top six of the Championship, they need to convert the chances they are creating in games.
