Nottingham Forest Agree Terms With Steve Cotterill

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 14 October 2011, 10:48

Following the resignation of Steve McClaren on 2nd October Nottingham Forest were defiant that they would appoint a new manager before their crunch match away to Coventry City this Saturday. The club have stuck to their promise by today prizing Steve Cotterill away from fellow Championship club Portsmouth. Forest were previously linked with the likes of Roy Keane and former manager Billy Davies but during the last week Cotterill emerged as the leading candidate for the post, with odds of 8/15 in the Next Nottingham Forest Manager betting market.

Cotterill, who is a former Notts County manager, leaves Pompey managerless and 19th in the table. He took charge of the south coast club in June 2010, succeeding Avram Grant who left to join West Ham. Cotterill managed to guide them to a respectable 16th place finish last season despite the club's well publicised financial problems. The 47-year-old is used to working on a tight budget which appears to be one of the main reasons why Forest swept in. He will now be tasked with rejuvenating Forest's season after their shocking start under McClaren, who left them 21st in the league with just eight points from their first 10 games. It is likely that he will also have to win over many of the Forest fans who have been left frustrated with the appointment, especially after the club had to pay Forest compensation to secure Cotterill's services.

Paddy Power have installed Forest as the narrow 6/4 favourites to get off to a winning start under their new boss away to Coventry this weekend. The home side have been handed odds of 7/4 while a draw is available at 9/4. Forest have long odds of 22/1 to get promoted and 6/1 to get relegated at the end of the season.
