'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Boss Praises Tyson

Nottingham Forest boss Colin Calderwood hailed striker Nathan Tyson after watching his League One promotion chasers sink Premiership Charlton in style at the City Ground.


Playing in a left midfield berth for the first time this season, Tyson's explosive runs caused chaos in the visitors' defence and help set up first-half strikes for Junior Agogo and Grant Holt.

Calderwood said: 'Sometimes you can't do anything with out-and-out pace and with that Nathan brings a great enthusiasm and honesty to his game.

'Nathan has got the kind of attributes any manager in any division would take. It will come to him almost naturally and undoubtedly he will go on and play at a higher level.'

Calderwood was delighted with the way his side responded to a poor period in the league - culminating in last week's 5-0 loss at Oldham - by proving more than a match for their Premiership opponents.

He added: 'If I am honest, I just looked at this game as one for enjoyment after a difficult period in the league, and we wanted a game to refresh ourselves.

'When we played better in the final third and Nathan got away and serviced the box fantastically well, we really looked like a threat.'

Former Tottenham defender Calderwood admitted he is now dreaming of a fourth-round return to White Hart Lane provided Spurs overcome Cardiff on Sunday.

He added: 'I would love to go back to White Hart Lane because of the length of time I was there. I would like a wee bit of excitement and a wee bit of glamour.'

Charlton boss Alan Pardew warned his players to shape up or ship out as they prepare to resume their improbable battle to escape from the Premiership relegation zone.

Pardew admitted his side's away form has now become a grave concern with the abject Addicks now having failed to win on the road for a year.

Pardew said: 'I have seen two home games with a response from a team and in two away games I have seen a different side. This team needs to have some strength, professionalism and nous away from home.

'I like to think that one or two players will recognise the performance they put in today was not good enough for this club and certainly not good enough for the standards I like to set.

'They either respond or I am afraid they will not find themselves anywhere near the first team.'

Pardew denied his 27th-minute replacement of Amady Faye with Souleymane Diawara had directly impacted the result despite Forest roaring into their two-goal lead within the next three minutes.

Pardew added: 'I am not going to say it is all hunky dory and it was nothing to do with me. You make decisions to try to alter what is going on on the pitch and sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.

'Sometimes you make substitutions at the time work for you and sometimes they don't. I don't think in all honesty that determined the result today, but it did have a factor right at that moment.

'I don't think our approach was wrong, but you have got to win your battles in certain areas and we lost too many. The best team won and Forest are a good team at home regardless which division they are in.'

I have to disagree with CC on one point, I don't want to draw Spurs again in the cup. Derby at home or Man U away would be my choice.

Tyson has been fantastic this season when he's played. He's certainly one of the most feared strikers in the league.
