Chris Brown says travel sick Doncaster can go to Nottingham Forest with no fear.

Back-to-back wins have eased the pressure on Rovers, who head to the City Ground in search of their first away win in 14 attempts.

Forest face a battle to hold onto their play-off spot after a six-game win-less run but Brown insists Rovers must focus on themselves - and relax - against Billy Davies’ Reds.

“They’re a great side. They’ll be in the mix come the end of the season but everyone knows they’re not firing on all cyclinders at the moment,” said Brown.

“After two great wins I just think we’ve got to go there with no fear.

“It’s a great stadium to play at and the lads just need to enjoy themselves and see what happens.

“Our away form’s been disappointing but it’s going to come to an end at some point.

“We’ve done the basics well in the last two games - with and without the ball - and it’s up to us to kick on now.”

Brown goes into today’s game in good spirits having scored his first goal in seven in Tuesday night’s win over Watford.

“I was due one,” he said.

“It’s been seven games [since my last goal].

“I’d have liked a few more goals this season but I like to think I bring a lot more than the goals.

“Hopefully, if selected, I’ll chip in with a few more between now and the end of the season.”
