Football - Davies not getting carried away

Billy Davies is insistent Nottingham Forest will keep their feet on the ground despite ending their recent struggle for home wins with a victory over promotion rivals QPR.

The Reds triumphed 2-0 thanks to Greg Halford's opener and a controversial second from Andy Reid to end a recent run of five games without success at the City Ground.

The result saw Forest lift themselves back into the top six while condemning QPR to back-to-back defeats but Davies is refusing to get carried away.

"Don't get concerned about being in the top six or not being in the top six, it is the Championship, it is a marathon. Let's look at the stats in March," Davies said.

"We thoroughly deserved three points, regardless of the second goal. We will enjoy the three points and look forward to another difficult game.

"The press' aim is promotion, we have never mentioned that, we are a progressing club and we know ourselves that we will continue to work on that progress.

"There is no doubt that we have been playing well at home, but not getting what we deserved.

"In the first half we were excellent, we created a host of chances again and we should have had the game dead and buried by half time.

"We will look at the transfer window, we will see what we can do in the transfer window and then look forward to the run in at the end of the season.

"We are just another club that is looking forward to January, when it comes to strengthening. We are no different to any other club."
