Forest camp confident in new skipper

Published Add your comment

Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies is confident goalkeeper Lee Camp will be able to fill the leadership void left by Paul McKenna.

Skipper McKenna is nursing a knee ligament injury sustained in the 1-0 win over Swansea last week and may not play again this season.

Davies is to turn to vice-captain Camp to take the armband in McKenna's absence and is optimistic the stopper can lead the side well.

He added: "I've said before that what we need most between now and the end of the season is a big personality and Lee has got that in abundance," Davies told the club's official website.

He added: "Right throughout our side I think our other young players have got to take a leaf out of his book and realise that's what it is going to take for us to carry on winning football games."
