Premier League: Nottingham Forest have moved on from appeal rejection – Nuno

Forest boss says club have moved on from disappointment of appeal rejection

Nuno Espirito Santo

Nottingham Forest boss Nuno Espirito Santo insists the club have moved on from the disappointment of their appeal against a Premier League points deduction being rejected.

Forest have a three-point cushion over the relegation zone after it was confirmed their four-point penalty for breaching financial rules would stand.

Espirito Santo said:  “I’m disappointed. We were all disappointed. We had the hope and belief that we could conquer the points on the pitch. We had belief they would give it back, but the decision is over.

“The players are normal, this is the reality. This is what we have, this is what we have to face. Let’s focus on ourselves. We always face it the same way, we focus on ourselves, on our job.

“We have already moved on.”

Forest could effectively secure their survival on Saturday evening if they can complete the double over Chelsea.

If Luton lose at West Ham and Burnley go down to Tottenham then Forest’s superior goal difference would make them as good as safe even with defeat at the City Ground.

“We don’t have to get distracted on what is happening in other stadiums. We have to focus on ourselves, this is the main message and this is what we want, let’s focus on ourselves and play a good game. We are ready to go,” Espirito Santo added.
