Nottingham Forest's Lee Camp enjoys pressure to succeed

Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Lee Camp says he is revelling in the pressure of being part of a team chasing promotion to the Premier League.

The Reds have climbed 15 places to fourth in the Championship after a run of 12 matches without defeat.

Camp told BBC Radio Nottingham: "The pressure is on now to keep performing, keep getting the points and keep ourselves in the position we are.

"It's a nice position to be in and the club's buzzing."

Camp was Forest's man of the match in the goalless draw at Sheffield United on Tuesday - a result which closed the gap on second-placed West Bromwich Albion to five points.

He said: "If we're going to achieve what we want to achieve then everyone's going to have to muck in at some point.

"Sometimes away from home we're going to come under a bit of pressure and it's up to me and the boys at the back to hang in there."

This weekend the Reds go to fifth-placed Swansea and Camp believes the Swans' style of play may suit Forest.

"You have to adapt to all different types of game," he said. "Having known Paulo Souza from QPR, I'm sure it'll be a completely different game again.

"He believes in playing football, he's a big believer in passing the ball and playing the game in the right way. These are the games you want to play in."
