Luke Chambers believes Nottingham Forest's strong team spirit will stand them in good stead in their npower Championship play-off semi-final second leg at Swansea.

The sold-out Liberty Stadium clash is certain to be an anxious affair following Thursday's goalless first leg at the City Ground and Forest defender Chambers believes the strong bond within manager Billy Davies' dressing room is certain to prove its worth.

"We have a real friendship in the team. We're all a similar age. We're all genuinely good friends," said Chambers, Forest's player of the year.


"In football you have acquaintances and you have team-mates. But over the last few years there's been a real friendship that has developed within this squad.

"There are no cliques and that can only bring us closer together and help us to achieve what we want. It is unusual to have that running right through a team.

"Players always talk about team spirit and camaraderie, but this is the best I have experienced during my career."
