Forest overcome nerves

Published Add your comment

Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies described his side's 1-0 win over Coventry as ``huge'' after they moved out of the Championship's bottom three.

A second-half goal by skipper James Perch did the trick for Forest, who upped the tempo after the break and got their reward.

Davies said: "We let ourselves down in the first half by being nervous in our play, but we showed a great appetite to win the game in the second half and I thought we deserved the three points."

Forest climbed up to fifth-from-bottom and are now three points clear of the bottom three with two games left.
