Brentford appoint Nicky Forster as manager

League One side Brentford have confirmed that they have appointed player Nicky Forster as the teams permanent manager until the end of the current season.

The player had taken on the role of caretaker manager since the sacking of Andy Scott earlier last month. Under Scott the side had only managed to win one game in 2011 and were heading towards the relegation zone and down to League Two but since Forster has taken over the running of the squad the side have been unbeaten and have managed to claim 11 points from 5 games winning 3 of the games and moving from 19th to 14th in the League One table.

This excellent run of form has seen the chances of the side getting relegated drastically reduced and the bookies Blue SQ are quoted odds of 28/1 for Brentford to go down this season. The side has also managed to progress to the final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy after beating Exeter 2-1 and will be heading to Wembley in April.

Since taking charge of the side the 37 year old striker has not once put himself into the side for the Bees, he has stated that he does not believe it is possible to do both jobs but with the lure of Wembley coming up and Brentford beginning to move up the league the player-manager may be tempted to name himself on the team sheet in April against Carlisle United. Brentford are at odds of around 6/1 to win the match in 90 minutes, the bookies Victor Chandler are putting the side at evens to lift the trophy at Wembley.
