City boss previews East Midlands trip

ALEX Neil is aiming to cap off a productive week with another three points when his side visit Nottingham Forest on Saturday (3pm).

City have notched back-to-back victories to rise into the play-off places in the Sky Bet Championship, and Neil wants his team to be unrelenting at the City Ground this weekend.

He told Norwich City TV: "It's about consistency. We've got to make sure that we go there, we put in a good performance and that we're hard to beat.

"With the players we've got in our team, we've got goals in us.

"We've got six points on the board this week, but we need to put another good win under our belt, particularly away from home after the last result. It will be nice to see the reaction."

Neil was in attendance for Forest's 2-2 draw at Rotheram United in midweek and he is expecting a challenge against a side that averages over two goals per game at each end.

"It will be a hard game. I went to watch them against Rotherham - in the first half Rotherham did better, but as the game wore on Forest came strong," added Neil.

"They've not lost a home game so far this season, so it's going to be a hard place to go. The fans get behind them at home.

"But we'll go there with the belief that if we go and play as well as we can, we can go and win the game."
