Perch: Cup Game Unwelcome
Nottingham Forest utility man James Perch believes the club's upcoming cup matches are an unwelcome distraction from the league.
Top-of-the-table Forest have two cup clashes - against Bristol City in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Wednesday and Salisbury in the FA Cup four days later - before they return to League One action on December 5.
Perch told the Evening Post: 'To be honest, I'd much rather concentrate on the league because we're on fire at the moment.
'We're playing well and we just need to keep getting the points.'
Forest hold a six-point lead at the top of the table after winning five of their last six league games.
