Nottingham Forest defender Matt Mills explains how club can win at Wolves tonight

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

The defender scored two goals in the win v Fulham last weekend.

Matt Mills was the unlikely hero for Nottingham Forest last weekend as he scored two, and nearly netted a hat-trick, as Forest defeated Fulham in the Championship.

Forest have been in good form recently. In their last four games they have scored eight goals and won three from four.

Their last two fixtures were at home but tonight they face Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Championship at Molineux.

If Forest win the game they will jump ahead of Wolves in the league and, at least temporarily, Blackburn Rovers and QPR into the top-half of the Championship table.

Speaking to the official Nottingham Forest website last weekend's hero Mills revealed how he feels Forest can pick up the three points on the road:

“I think resilience – sometimes when you play at home teams set up to nullify you, whereas when they’re at home they’ll be looking to take the game to us.

“I think if we’re very resilient and can stay in the game we’ll always have chances with the players we’ve got.

“Whenever you win games it breeds confidence, but I don’t think we’ve been far away this season.

“We’ve been quietly confident that what we’ve been doing will get us results and now we’re seeing the fruits of our labour.”

A win would be massive for Forest. They have not won on the road since consecutive away victories over QPR and Birmingham City in September.

If they could push into the top half of the table just a matter of weeks after boss Dougie Freedman seemed destined for the sack then it would be a fantastic achievement from the players.
