Forde ramps up the pressure on Forest

GOALKEEPER David Forde believes Millwall's impressive away form will only serve to increase the pressure on Nottingham Forest ahead of Saturday's basement battle at the City Ground.

Kenny Jackett's side have won three and drawn one of their last four matches on the road, and Forde believes the Lions' counter-attacking style has been the key to their recent success.

He told the club's official website: "Everyone keeps asking why we're doing so much better on our travels than at The Den just now, and while I do believe we will start winning at home again soon, I think the fact that we're a good counter-attacking side has stood us in good stead away from home.

"When teams sit in and invite you to break them down you can become vulnerable if you can't do so and then you get caught on the counter yourselves.

"All the pressure is on them [Forest] and the way we're playing away just now means we're full of confidence.

"We just need to focus on getting to 50 points now and then I firmly believe we'll kick on and have a better season next time round."
