Managers On Forest V Huddersfield

Managers On Forest V Huddersfield

Nottingham Forest manager Colin Calderwood challenged his side to go on a 'decisive' run and win promotion after a Junior Agogo double lifted them back into the automatic promotion places with a 5-1 demolition of Huddersfield.



Agogo's brace was added to by goals from Lewis McGugan, Grant Holt and James Perch while Matthew Young volleyed a late consolation for Huddersfield.

Calderwood said: 'I would like to think that winning at Chesterfield last week and then scoring five goals at home will put us in the mood to go on the kind of run that will be decisive.

'There were a lot of pleasing things about the way we played against Huddersfield and getting the cushion of a three-goal lead inside 20 minutes speaks for itself.

'Our last couple of results have reflected not only what we have done on the field but the way we have been on the training ground and it is important that we continue to move forward in the coming weeks.

'We've gone back into second place in the table and it's up to us to try and stay there at a time when we have difficult games coming up this coming week against Doncaster and Scunthorpe.

'Scunthorpe have done remarkably well but we know that if we can put a run together now it could put us clear of the other teams near us.'

There was no chance of Huddersfield salvaging anything after they had conceded three goals inside the first 20 minutes and it all left Huddersfield boss Peter Jackson shaking his head in disbelief.

He said: 'We have got to start keeping clean sheets if we are to get the kind of results we want to achieve.

'We were a shambles at the back and that was the difference because I would think we had as much, if not more, possession than Forest but found ourselves four down at half-time.

'We were not picking people up and we were trying to play offside when we shouldn't have been and you can't do that sort of thing against any side, particularly one as good as Nottingham Forest.

'David Mirfin and Frank Sinclair have done well for us but they didn't here.'

Part of the reason we battered Huddersfield so completely has to be the fans. After a good start, even the grouchiest losers who are never happy were struggling to find something to complain about. It's a shame that we have to compete against some of our own fans, but the genuine ones of us are priceless.
