DOUGIE: PA­TIENCE IS A VIRTUE

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

DOUGIE Freed­man is con­fi­dent his Not­ting­ham For­est revo­lu­tion will be a suc­cess but ad­mits his ap­proach re­quires pa­tience in the stands as well as on the field.

For­est had won seven of their last ten games be­fore yes­ter­day’s trip to Nor­wich, in­clud­ing an im­pres­sive 2-0 tri­umph over Rother­ham on Wed­nes­day night.

They had a lot of pos­ses­sion against the Millers but of­ten took a while to carve out clear-cut op­por­tu­ni­ties, to the frus­tra­tion of some sup­port­ers.

How­ever, Freed­man has urged the fans to trust him and his sys­tem.

“There is a strat­egy to what we do.You can­not just hit the ball up to the striker and tell him to get on with it,” said Freed­man.

“We are mak­ing sure that we can play a lit­tle bit more. I want to do that be­cause the For­est fans de­serve it. The fans will get used to me – they will get used to me hav­ing a pa­tient build-up.

“Against Rother­ham I could hear one or two voices in the stands call­ing for us to get the ball for­ward and attack.

“Well, no.We will attack when we are ready to attack.”
