Forest returned to winning ways with a narrow 1-0 victory over Derby in the East Midlands derby.
Nelson Oliveira’s goal in the fifth minute proved to be the difference between the two sides.
"We showed what we were all about for the first 15 minutes and then we gave a real disciplined performance. We had chances too and it was a well-deserved victory.
“The crowd played a huge part in getting us over the line in the last ten minutes. We are a good side in a a difficult moment but we stuck at it.”
Over the course of the 90 minutes at the City Ground, hosts Forest had just 34% of the possession, took 15 shots of which four were on target, and earned two corners.
Visitors Derby had 66% of the possession, took 14 shots of which only two were on target, and earned five corners.
The Reds are now 15th in the Championship table with 17 points from 16 matches, seven points above the relegation zone.
Forest will take on Brentford away from home in the league after the two-week international break.
