Chris Hughton has urged Nottingham Forest to take their anger and frustration out on fellow strugglers Sheffield Wednesday as they attempt to end a seven-game run without a win.
Forest entertain the bottom-of-the-table Owls on Tuesday evening sitting just above the drop zone on goal difference and having taken just a single point from their last seven outings.
The six most recent have been against promotion-chasing Bournemouth, Swansea, Watford, Reading, Norwich and Brentford.
Hughton told the club's official website: "We are frustrated, angry, disappointed, all of those things because we need to be picking up points. We have found in the last six games, those against the top sides, that we have fallen short of that.
"I believe that our performances haven't warranted all of the results that we have got, but the fact is that we haven't got those results.
"We need to do better and the next best opportunity to do that is tomorrow. With the run that we are on, the next game becomes even more important."
Wednesday are yet to win under new manager Tony Pulis and have collected just four of the last 24 points on offer.
