Davies sacked by Forest

24 March 2014 13:28

Nottingham Forest have announced the sacking of manager Billy Davies in the wake of a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of rivals Derby County.

Forest slipped out of the Championship play-off places as a result of Saturday's humbling defeat, which extended their winless run to eight matches.

A statement from Forest on Monday read: "Nottingham Forest Football Club have confirmed the termination of manager Billy Davies' employment.

"The club thank Mr Davies for his efforts during his second spell as manager since his re-appointment in February 2013 and wish him well for the future.

"Nottingham Forest will make a further announcement in due course."

Davies returned to the City Ground 13 months ago, having previously led Forest to the Championship play-offs on two occasions during an initial spell at the club between January 2009 and June 2011.

The former Preston North End and Derby boss oversaw a 16-match unbeaten run in all competitions prior to Forest's recent slump in form.

Neil Warnock, a vastly experienced manager who enjoyed success with Notts County more than two decades ago, has been strongly tipped to succeed Davies on a deal until the end of the season.
