Forest will take on West Yorkshire outfit Leeds at the City Ground in the Championship on Sunday evening.
“Leeds are a good side and they’ve got a lot of threat,” Hobbs told Forest’s official website. “We’ve got to respect them but at the same time go out and do what we have been doing which is stamping our authority on the game.”
Forest are unbeaten in their last five league encounters with Leeds, winning three in the process.
Leeds's last victory at the City Ground came back in November 2011, with goals from Jonny Howson, Robert Snodgrass, Luciano Becchio and Adam Clayton securing the three points.
The Whites are in good form at the moment and will head into the game with confidence.
Steve Evans’s side have won their last two Championship matches and will fancy their chances of picking up all three points at the City Round.
Forest are looking to win five successive games at home for the second time in 2015. It promises to be an exciting game at the City Ground and should have a few goals.
