NATHAN Tyson reckons Wanderers will still get promotion this season even without his goals.

The League Two hotshot who joined Nottingham Forest on Friday, November 11, after netting 44 goals in 87 league appearances for Wycombe believes Blues are good enough to go up and play League One football next time round.

He said: "They'll still get promotion. They proved that when they played against Grimsby without me and there's nothing to worry about.

"Tommy Mooney is going to get goals but the only concern is goals from midfield.

"You can't rely on one player scoring all the goals. It felt like that a bit last season when I was the only one scoring and then we didn't do well when I went through a dry patch. If they can start getting goals from midfield, they'll be okay. I'm not sure if Wycombe can win the league but they can get promoted."

And Tyson, who will sign a three-and-a-half -year contract for Forest in January, revealed why he had a change of heart over joining Forest after saying he would wait until January just a month ago.

He said: "I went up there on Thursday, had a look around and spoke to the manager Gary Megson and the directors. They just made me feel really welcome.

"I found the manager very polite towards me and my fiancee. They were very helpful and are going to sort everything out so my only job is to perform on the pitch.

"I thought I was going in January but it's good it's happened now rather than in January. I knew my time in Wycombe was ending and it showed in the last couple of games, to be honest. It was getting on my mind.

"But it's been a good two years with the club. It was sad to leave but, sometimes, you have to move on."

Tyson had nothing but praise for Wanderers and manager John Gorman.

He said: "John Gorman is a fantastic manager. I spoke to him on Friday and wished him all the best. He's helped me out a lot and he's probably the nicest manager I've played under.

"Steve Hayes has also put his money where his mouth is and you only have to look at the training ground now as opposed to what is used to be like to see that this is a club going in the right direction."

Tyson has signed on loan with Forest with a deal around the £650,000 mark set to be agreed when
