Warburton Still Wants Improvement

Warburton Still Wants Improvement

Manager Mark Warburton has reflected on the victory over Shrewsbury Town yesterday evening in the League Cup and called for more improvement from Nottingham Forest.

Forest took the two nil lead at the City Ground with goals from Mustapha Carayol and Jason Cummings but Shrewsbury did get a goal back on the day.

Speaking to the Official Forest Site as he met with the media post game, Warburton explained that he was pleased to be through to the second round draw but he wanted more from the group.

'We have to give full respect to Shrewsbury. It was very difficult conditions tonight and the ground staff did remarkably well to get the game on. It wasn`t great tonight, to be honest. We changed 11 players as we wanted the squad to get some game time and it was still a very strong team in terms of names.'

Warburton went on to say.

'We have got to be better in moving the ball and it is a couple of games in a row where we can ask questions of ourselves; it is early in the season and I am delighted for the players to get some pitch time. We were disappointed in some areas but if you can be disappointed but still win games of football that is a good trait to have.'

He ended by talking about his hopes for the competition this year, and that was obviously for Forest to have a mini cup run.

'We want to go as far as possible in this competition. The association this club has with this competition is evident but we want high-quality, competitive games. It is a chance for players to maintain their match fitness and match sharpness so that they are ready and can deliver when they are called upon.'
