From the opposition

Rotherham manager Paul Warne said his side must keep level-headed in their fight for survival as they face The Reds after three straight defeats.

Speaking after their loss against Norwich on the weekend, Warne said: “We have the same processes, we are always performances driven, not results.

“You can’t go up and down like a lunatic, we are always consistent with the players and we will show them the ways we think we can cause Forest problems.

“But Forest are in good form, they won again today and they made some amazing signings in January so we know it is going to be a formidable challenge to compete with them but we are going to have to because we know we need to pick some points up.”
