Nottingham Forest manager Paul Williams has pleaded with fans to continue to support his side despite the Midlands club’s poor run of form according to the Nottingham Post.

Forest have underachieved in the Championship this season with the club currently sitting just nine points above the relegation places. A run of just one win in 10 league matches has seen the club slide down the table.

Manager Dougie Freedman lost his job after a period of sub-standard results and Paul Williams has been handed the reigns until the end of the season. Nottingham Forest have so far recorded one draw and three defeats during Williams’ spell in charge but the Forest boss has pleaded with fans to continue to support their side despite their winless run.

“Maybe the players are suffering a bit, when it comes to confidence,” Williams told the Nottingham Post.

“You will not see me having a go at fans, because they pay a lot of money to watch the game.”

“But it is hurtful and harmful to players when they get booed at home. So it is a case of us asking them to be lenient and patient, at times.”

“We will try to give a good account of ourselves” the Forest boss added.

“It is tough for fans, because of what they have seen this season.”

“But we need them as much as they probably need to see a performance from us.”

“The message for fans is to stick with us; stay behind us and we will give them our all.”

Nottingham Forest play promotion chasing Brighton & Hove Albion at The City Ground on Monday evening.
