Daw­son feels 12 teams are in with chance

Nottingham Post - - SPORT -

NOT­TING­HAM For­est are among the teams ca­pa­ble of chal­leng­ing for pro­mo­tion - but it is a large com­pet­i­tive group, warns Michael Daw­son.

The ex­pe­ri­enced de­fender says there is no ob­vi­ous can­di­date among them to run away with things, as Wolves did last sea­son even if he would love the Reds to be that team.

“Wolves were by far the best team in the di­vi­sion last sea­son and they ran away with things, de­servedly,” said Daw­son. “I don’t think there is any team who will do that, this time.

“I’d like to think it could be us. But the league is so tightly com­pet­i­tive, every­one seems to be beat­ing each other, to pick up points.

“You just need some con­sis­tency. If you can find that, you have a chance.

“But there are prob­a­bly 12 teams fight­ing, with a real chance of pro­mo­tion. You have to do ev­ery­thing you can, to make sure you are in the top two or in the play-offs.”

For­est moved back into the top six after beat­ing Sh­effield United last week­end but, as they pre­pare to face Stoke City at the City Ground, Daw­son says the Reds will not now sud­denly be tar­get­ing a place in the top two - be­cause that has al­ways been the goal.
