HALFORD HAPPY TO BE MAN FOR ALL POSITIONS
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.
