Ghana captain Andre Ayew is confident his club side, Nottingham Forest FC will get a good result against Newcastle United this weekend (Friday).
He says the players of the Red and Whites outfit are mentally prepared for the clash as the underdogs tag doesn’t worry them a bit.
Speaking about Forest’s underdog spirit, Ayew said, “Everybody who wears a Forest shirt knows it’s not going to be easy, but we’re going to keep believing in ourselves. If you were to say we’d be where we are after 26 games, a lot of people would be happy. That’s a fact.”
Despite their struggles in away games, Ayew insists that they should not focus solely on the negatives. “The results will come. Our problem is we’re facing teams that have been together for four or five years, they have their own style of play and their own ideas, but it’s not time to panic.”
Ayew credits Forest’s underdog spirit for driving them forward and believes they can overcome their challenges. “It’s going to be difficult, but we don’t just have to look at the negatives. We know our away form isn’t good enough, but we’re not going to give up. We’re going to keep fighting until the end,” he said.
