Billy Davies Returns To Nottingham Forestby Jack Kitson / 07 February 2013, 13:57Tweet
Billy Davies has returned to the City Ground for a second spell following the departure of Alex McLeish on Tuesday. Davies instantly emerged as the hot odds-on favourite in the betting but, despite interest from Blackpool, has opted to make his long awaiting comeback with Nottingham Forest.
Davies becomes Forest's third manager of the campaign, with Sean O'Driscoll harshly sacked on Boxing Day and McLeish parting ways earlier in the week due to a dispute with the club's controversial Kuwaiti owners.
Davies will now be tasked with leading the club into the play-offs. Forest remain in the mix in 11th place and six points adrift of the top six. With 16 matches remaining they have every chance of achieving their goal, with Davies no doubt already targeting a winning start away to Bristol City on Saturday.
