Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies admits that he is not happy with the "balance of the side".

Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies has claimed that his side lack potency in wide positions.

Davies, who took charge of the club last month, has overseen a run of three wins and one draw from their last four matches in the league.

However, the former Derby County manager believes that the team is suffering due to its lack of "natural wide players".

"Until we find some natural wide players who can run at full-backs and get crosses into the box I refuse to criticise our strikers if they don't score, I've told them that," Davies told the club's official website.

"The balance of the side isn't quite right for what they require and I cannot fault their work rate. This is a long-term problem which we need to address as the weeks and months go by, but for now we are looking to keep as fit as we can and maintain some continuity."

Forest currently occupy eighth spot in the Championship table.
