Colin says loss is a wake up call

The defeat to Bournemouth who are placed in 20th position in league one have gave Nottingham Forest a wake up call according to Colin Calderwood.

The Trees were well beaten 2-0 against a Bournemouth team who havent been playing too well in recent months. This was thanks to two strikes from youngsters Brett Pitman and Matthew Connolly.

Calderwood said: ' There are no easy games away from home and you can never take anything for granted no matter who you are playing.

'I had a sense before the game that some of our players thought they only had to turn up to win and you can not have that attitude.

'We were poor in possession and absolutely terrible out of possession, we did not play with any rhythm and deserved to be beaten.

'The only positive thing is this is a reminder that if we are not going to work hard and be positive we are going to get our bottoms smacked.'

From what i heard on the radio Colin has hit the nail right on the head and we need to get back on track with a good win on Saturday and hopefully not slip up against Salisbury next Tuesday!

In fairness to Bournemouth we haven't been performing poorly. Just our attacking play has been poor. From what I hear Forest didn't wake up until quater of an hour to go and were poor, rather than Bournemouth being good. But what can you expect out of a game if you only have 37% possession?
