Steve McClaren says he is not concerned about the reaction to him from opposing fans "What matters most is what we do at Forest and I have been delighted with the fans' response here," he told the Nottingham Evening Post in the wake of stick aimed at him from Southampton supporters at the weekend. And the new Reds boss has the perfect chance to make his own fans happy this weekend with an East Midlands derby win against the Rams. "We have talked about them being an important part of the team; about being a 12th man," added McClaren. "They were that against Notts County and Leicester in particular. "We need them, they are the most important people."
