Adlene Guedioura has admitted that the weekend’s tie against Hull City was a game for Nottingham Forest to forget and move quickly on from.

Hosting the side at the City Ground for the encounter, we fell two nil behind inside of the opening 45 minutes and the returning Guedioura knew it was a game we had to move quickly on from as we look to get back to winning ways and play ourselves into some form under new manager Aitor Karanka.

Speaking to the Official Forest Site as he met with the media himself to discuss the match he clearly understood everyone’s frustration, admitting the players felt that themselves in the dressing room at full time.

‘It was a frustrating performance. We started well but then there was the penalty and from then we were not patient. We had a good chance but it is a game to forget. We need to work hard, change a few things and hopefully in the next game we will get the win. We have to show more, especially at home. It is a frustration for us, we wanted to show we are better than this, and we have another game on Saturday where we can show we are better.’

With our winless run now stretching to four games across all competitions, Guedioura knew it was down to the spirit in the camp to see them through the current period of struggles, and with the quality he knew was in the group, he remained confident it would turn around quickly as long as we stayed focused and kept putting in the hard work.

‘We have a good team spirit. We just need some wins. Wins make everything better and we need that winning mentality as it is so important. This is a big loss, we are upset but now we need to move on and work hard to win the next game. When you see each part of the team, we have young players with good quality and good talent, and the experienced players we have as well, we hope that it is a good mix of this and that it will work.’

He added.

‘We can only move forward, that is the only way we can do it and change this run. We don’t want a bad run like this. We just have to pull our sleeves up and work hard to change it.’
