Forest failed to return to winning ways in the Championship, as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Preston at Deepdale.
Eoin Doyle’s goal as early as the second minute proved to be the difference between the two sides.
"It's a familiar tale, on top for 85 minutes,” Freedman told BBC Radio Nottingham. “It’s the story of our lives right now.
“We've got injuries, suspensions. The answers are in the club, in the treatment room! But now we don't have them. I've got no complaints with what they gave me effort-wise”
Over the course of the 90 minutes at Deepdale, hosts Preston had 48% of the possession, took 10 shots of which four were on target, and failed to earn a single corner.
Visiting Forest had 52% of the possession, took 15 shots of which six were on target, and earned six corners.
Looking ahead to the clash, Freedman told BBC Radio Nottingham: “I'm really looking forward to it. I want to show everyone how well we're playing, as well as we played tonight.”
Forest are 19th in the Championship table at the moment with 14 points from 15 matches, just four points above the relegation zone.
