Davies praises Forest’s spirit

Billy Davies was impressed with the character of his Nottingham

Forest side after a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday put his side

firmly in the play-off mix.

A third straight win, courtesy of Radoslaw Majewski’s fifth goal

in three games, kept Forest’s unbeaten run going since Davies

returned to the club last month

Midfielder Majewski was on hand to slide home in the 27th minute

following a superb run from Simon Cox and the visitors had further

chances to extend their lead, but were left hanging on as Wednesday

poured forward.

“In the first 45 minutes our play was outstanding, we should

have been more than one goal in front,” he said. “In the second

half we knew we would have to change our game but in the end that

was a very good win.

“Their tails were up, they have been on a good run, coming here

you know what you get. In the second half we showed a different

type of game. This was a man’s test because they are a strong

side.

“I’m very proud of the performance, it’s a great three points,

delighted with the clean sheet.

“We have got to find consistency in team selection, we have got

work to do.

“In the short term we have got a great spirit, we are working

very hard and at the minute and we are pleased, but we’re not

fooled. This is a very tough league.”
