'Belief is the Key' Nottingham manager hopeful of victory against Reds


Liverpool face Nottingham Forest in the Fa Cup quarter-finals tonight

Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper has faced the press ahead of Sunday's Fa Cup tie with Liverpool, a game most pundits will expect Jurgen Klopp's seemingly unstoppable Reds to win easily.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Cooper said: "The objective throughout the cup competitions is always to progress into the next round and Sunday's game is one we're really looking forward to. Liverpool have been brilliant to watch and we all admire the way they play. It's one of the toughest games you can play, so we're going to have to be ready for it.

"We understand it is a little bit different this time because of the level of the opponent, but we can't change our approach and we still want to get success in the game. Every day I'm asking the players to be the best version of themselves, to be winners, to give their best and to train and play the way we want to play.

"We'll be focusing on what we do and how we play, backing ourselves and understanding the challenge that lies ahead."

Seven-times winners Liverpool are aiming to reach the FA Cup Final for the first time since 2012, when they lost 2-1 to Chelsea at Wembley. Forest are seeking a first cup final appearance since 1991, when they were beaten 2-1 by Tottenham after extra time.

The Nottinghamshire club has won the FA Cup twice in its history - in the 1897/98 and 1958/59 seasons.
