Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies has encouraged his players to develop a nasty streak to help them avoid relegation from the Championship.

Forest travel to Barnsley at the weekend two points adrift of safety with six games remaining. And Davies has highlighted Sheffield United captain Chris Morgan as being the sort of player that his squad need to try and emulate if they are to survive the drop.

"They are all quiet," he told the Nottingham Evening Post. "We are lacking in that mentality because of their age and experience."

He continued: "It is difficult to turn one or two players into monsters.

"People like Morgan at Sheffield United, they are experienced, they are grinders and they are nasty. It takes time to get that, but that's what we need."
