Hasselbaink: Forest on track

First-team coach Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes Nottingham

Forest are on the right track towards their promotion target under

manager Sean O’Driscoll.

Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Brighton left the Reds level on points

with Gus Poyet’s side and three shy of the top six.

“We are doing our best for it (promotion),” the former Chelsea

striker Hasselbaink said.

“It depends on a lot of factors, you need a little bit of luck

and you need everything to go for you.

“We had a really good result against Brighton. Brighton played

quite well in the first half and should have scored one, but we had

some chances as well and hit the bar.

“In the second half we were really good and could have won it.

But we drew 0-0 and that was a good result. We are on the right


He added: “It is a very tight division. Everybody can beat

everybody – look at Cardiff who were beaten by Peterborough at


“Peterborough, bottom of the league, beat the top of the league.

That is what you are working with. It is the hardest league to get

out of.”
