HAL­FORD HAPPY TO BE MAN FOR ALL PO­SI­TIONS

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

VER­SA­TILE Greg Hal­ford ad­mits he’s more than happy to adapt for his own team, but in­sists he’s in no mood to al­low Wat­ford to push Not­ting­ham For­est out of po­si­tion to­day.

A right-back by trade, Hal­ford has ex­celled through­out his ca­reer across the back four, in mid­field and even as a striker for For­est against Bolton last week­end.

The 28-year-old, who started off at Colch­ester, has be­come ac­cus­tomed to mov­ing about the pitch but is adamant he wants to see no change when it comes to the Reds’ fly­ing start to the Cham­pi­onship sea­son at Vicarage Road.

For­est will go in search of their fourth suc­ces­sive vic­tory and Hal­ford ad­mits he’s more than happy to play where he’s told by boss Billy Davies.

“I absolutely loved play- ing up front,” said Hal­ford. “Ev­ery­one knows how much I en­joyed com­ing on against Wolves last year and help­ing cre­ate a cou­ple of goals – it is some­thing that I rel­ish.

“I’ve been try­ing to nail down a po­si­tion for years but it doesn’t re­ally seem to be hap­pen­ing. To be hon­est, as long as I’m play­ing, I won’t com­plain about where I play.

“Con­fi­dence is sky high and when you get on a win­ning run it is hard to break – hope­fully that will con­tinue.”

Dar­ius Hen­der­son and Si­mon Cox are both in con­tention to re­turn for For­est but Hal­ford is con­fi­dent about what­ever side is put out.

“Wat­ford have started the sea­son like they ended the last, scor­ing plenty of goals, but we be­lieve we are ca­pa­ble of pick­ing up three points,” he added.
