Burton boss Nigel Clough new favourite for Nottingham Forest job

Nigel Clough could be on the cusp of following in his father’s footsteps once again after he was installed as the new favourite (2/1 Bet Victor) in the Nottingham Forest Manager Market.

Nigel’s father, Brian, famously managed the Reds between 1975 and 1993, during which he led the club to back-to-back European Cups, the English title, and four League Cup successes…to name a few!

Brian also managed Derby (1967-1973), with whom Nigel had a spell at between 2009 and 2013.

Nigel is currently in charge of Burton, with whom he led up to the Championship last season. However, the Brewers have endured a tough time of late, losing seven of their last eight games, leaving them 22nd in the second-tier table.

Meanwhile, managerless Forest are only three places and five points above Burton in 19th following a rotten run of one win in nine games.

Forest have been managerless since sacking Philippe Montanier 12 days ago after picking up just two points from what proved to be his final seven games.

The Reds have since been linked with a multitude of managers, but they’ve had absolutely no luck so far, with a number of the key contenders seemingly unwilling to work under controversial owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi, who has stormed his way through seven managers since 2012.

Barnsley boss, Paul Heckingbottom, had been one of the favourites for the post, but he has today (Thursday) ruled himself out of contention.

Gary Rowett, Nigel Pearson, and Billy Davies appear increasingly unlikely to get the job, while Clough’s sudden surge to the top of the betting is odd, as he too recently seemed to reject rumours of switching Championship dugouts.

Interim boss Gary Brazil appears the best bet at 6/1 (Bet Victor)…but, in truth, who knows!
