Clean bill of health for Forest

ROY Keane is targeting the teams just above, as he bids to propel Ipswich Town further up the table during the last three weeks of the season.

But to do that, Town will need to cause a major upset at one of his old clubs, Nottingham Forest, this Saturday.

Town will be hoping to record three wins on the trot for the first time this season, at third-placed Forest this Saturday. Keane’s men are currently in 13th spot, but they are only one point adrift of Bristol City in ninth.

“We’ve managed to get away from the bottom of the table, but there are a few teams just above us that we’d like to try and get past,” said Keane.

“Our run of home games is pretty difficult. Derby, Forest and Newcastle, their home forms have been the best other than West Brom.

“Obviously Forest have had a very good season considering where they were last year. Forest are a brilliant club but our players will be going up there to look forward to it.

“The big plus was going to Derby and winning. I didn’t really make too many changes. We should have been 4-1 up at half-time,” added Keane.
