Joe Worrall is delighted with the start that Nottingham Forest have made to the season.

Joe Worrall is confident that the Reds can challenge for promotion to the Premier League following Friday’s 3-2 win at Stoke City.

The Reds temporarily moved top of the Championship for the first time in five years on Friday night. They now find themselves sat in third place after yesterday’s fixtures.

It wasn’t the best performance from the Reds, but they were able to secure another valuable three points. Lamouchi’s side showed the ingredients of a side capable of challenging for promotion.

The Reds finished the game with 42% possession and only had six shots compared to the 23 fashioned by the Potters. It was further evidence of how clinical Lamouchi’s side have been this season.

And Forest defender Worrall has revealed that Lamouchi told the playing staff to not ‘get carried away’ after the game. The Reds will be looking to extend their unbeaten run away against Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday.

Worrall told the Nottingham Post: “Like the manager has said, we can’t get carried away.


“None of the lads are going to get carried away with it. That will be stamped out fairly quickly if people do.

“We just need to carry on with what we’re doing – defending and scoring great goals.”

Forest have still only lost one game in the Championship so far this season. This came against West Bromwich Albion at the City Ground on the opening day of the campaign.

Worrall is right in saying that it’s vital that they don’t get carried away. They’re still only nine games into the season and there’s a long way to go, but the early signs are certainly good.
