Forest chief Dougie Freedman has lauded his players after they acheived back-to-back wins in the Championship.

Forest host high-flying Middlesbrough on Saturday (12.30pm).
Freedman said: “This football club has been through a lot and there are a lot of people who have something to say about that.
“But now is the time to take stock a little bit.

“Let us do what we have got to do, if we worry about our own house, we are a better side – and that is what we have done.
“Players are putting their effort into the team now.
“I have no problem in saying that, when I first came here, there were too many people here who were not here because they wanted to play for the club.
“There were other reasons why they were here – but we are slowly moving the club away from that.
Freedman also praised the performance at St Andrew’s where his side won 1-0 thanks to Dexter Blackstock’s strike.
He added: “I am sure people were questioning things before the game, but I have the opportunity to work with these players every day.
“I have the mindset that you need a squad in this division.
“I know now that I can turn around and see a bench behind me that can help me to win a game or hold on to a game.”
