manager, Neil Warnock, admits he is not worried about

Britt Assombalonga

’s future with the team despite knowing his contract will be ending by the final days of the season.


, who claimed to be happy for having the striker on his side, talked about Assombalonga after their win over

Nottingham Forest

, saying:

“When Britt’s like that, he’s as good as anything. I just wish he’d do that every week.”

When asked about the 28-year-old’s future, Warnock responded:

“We don’t worry about that here, there are a lot of players out of contract. What will be, will be, we’ll worry about that when we have to.”

“We were at it from the first minute, I knew we’d be all right. We never took our foot off the pedal, that’s lovely to see.”

“We were sloppy on Saturday, but the only disappointment was not scoring more goals.”

“Apart from their goal, I can’t think of a save our keeper had to make. I’d give Jonny Howson 11 out of 10 for his performance.”

In return Forest’s coach,

Chris Hughton

, also talked about their defeat to Warnock’s men, saying:

“It was a disappointing night, particularly on the back of a seven-game unbeaten run and a really good performance (against Millwall).”

“But we never really got going, we needed to impose ourselves more on them and we were not able to do that. If you cannot do that, you need to be resolute and solid at the back.”

“We conceded two really poor goals. With the form we have been in and certainly the defensive form we have been in, it was not like us. That is probably the most disappointing aspect.”

“I cannot say that we were the better side; I cannot say we deserved to get anything from the game. They play in a certain way. But they have quality in their side.”

Adding about


being sent off the pitch, Hughton said:

“My gut feeling is I have no complaints with the sending off. With where we are, we have to keep our discipline.”

“As for Yuri, when we were pushing to get back into the game and anything can happen, you can’t allow your frustrations to get the better of you.”
