Nottingham Forest’s Ben Brereton has told the Nottingham Post that their match against Blackburn Rovers is the biggest game of their season.

The 17-year-old striker has been attracting a lot of attention from the best teams in the country over the last few months and has already been showing his worth to Forest by breaking into the first teams and scoring a few goals as Forest aim to pull away from the relegation zone.

And they could pull away even further by beating Blackburn on Good Friday. They are currently 22nd in the table and a win for Forest would see them continue to rise up the table and give them an eight point cushion from the relegation zone with just four games to go, something that would surely make their place in the Championship secure for another season. And it’s because of that why Brereton is declaring this as the most important game of the season.

He said: “I’d say it is the biggest game of the season because if we win that we’re looking good,”

“Hopefully we can win all of the rest of the games, but we’ve just got to keep working hard and get our heads down in training and hopefully get it right for Blackburn.”

When asked about their big win against Huddersfield Town last week, he added: “It was a big win. The lads were buzzing in the dressing room,”

“Everyone didn’t leave anything on the pitch, so it was good.”

“Blackburn are coming to our place now, and we’ve got a good home record, so it should be a good game and hopefully we can get the three points.”
