Cotterill coy on survival
Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cotterill refused to be drawn on his club's npower Championship survival despite being seven points clear of the drop zone.
Forest had to settle for a goalless draw with play-off hopefuls Blackpool to edge ever nearer safety but Cotterill refuses to take anything for granted.
He told reporters afterwards: "You can write what you like but we know we still have a job to do. Theoretically we need two more points to get us where we want to be and we will just have to carry on as we have been doing until we get there.
"We have stayed focussed for a long time and thankfully our performances have stayed with us but any manager would tell you in this situation that there is work still to be done.
"I thought our performance against Blackpool warranted three points and talking to their bench after the game they said that no team has put them under the kind of pressure that we did.
"And if there was a stand-out performance from anyone it was from their goalkeeper, who made some fantastic saves. Blackpool, for their part, are always a difficult team to play against so I was delighted that we collected our fourth clean sheet in five games."
