Nottingham Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi has called on his players to learn from their mistakes ahead of tonight’s game with Hull City at the City Ground.

The Reds chief was speaking to Nottinghamshire Live ahead of tonight’s game and he insists that it is down to his players to prove that Sunday’s defeat to Wigan was simply a ‘bad day’.

The Forest incumbent believes the Reds will need to have two qualities during tonight’s home game if they are to get through it with maximum points in the bag.

He told Nottinghamshire Live: “After every mistake, we have to learn; to make sure we don’t repeat the same mistake.

“It was a bad Sunday, but we have now got the Hull game and we must focus on this one. It is really important to come back in the right way at home.


“My expectation is just to try and play as we know we can – to be efficient and determined. At home, it is necessary to take the maximum points.”

Seat Pitch Summary – Home comforts just the tonic for Lamouchi

A win tonight in front of another bumper City Ground crowd will see Sunday’s disappointment simply brushed under the carper.

Forest created lots of chances on Sunday but failed to really trouble the Wigan goalkeeper, David Marshall.

In front of an adoring City Ground faithful, Lamouchi will hope to excite and it’s perhaps comforting for Reds supporters that the boss has called winning a ‘necessity’.

Forest must turn the City Ground back into a fortress if they are serious about promotion and in fairness, during 2019 they have worked hard to do that.

Only Liverpool have won more home games in the top four English divisions during the calendar year and that will give Forest confidence going into tonight’s game.
