Jack Hobbs shares what Dougie Freedman has told Forest players about attacking play

Holloway & Freedman

Nottingham Forest are in good form in the Championship at the moment.

Nottingham Forest defender Jack Hobbs has revealed to the club’s official website what manager Dougie Freedman has told him and his teammates about their attacking play.

“We had a sticky patch where we were creating a lot of chances and not converting them and that got a bit frustrating for everyone,” said the 27-year-old.

“The gaffer sat us down and said we have to be more ruthless in our attacking play and since then I think we’ve been phenomenal.

“Scoring three goals against Reading and Fulham and then two against MK Dons was really pleasing for all of us.”

Forest are in good form at the moment and are pushing for a Championship playoff spot. The Reds are 15th in the league table at the moment with 28 points from 22 matches.

Freedman’s side are nine points behind Ipswich Town, who are currently sixth in the standings and occupy the final playoff spot.

Forest have a game in hand, which is against West Yorkshire outfit Leeds United at the City Ground later today.

The Reds have scored 22 goals, created 253 chances and conceded 21 goals in 22 Championship games so far this season.

Forest are unbeaten in their last five league encounters with Leeds, winning three in the process.

The Whites’ 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 points.
