Davies handed Forest second chance

Billy-DaviesNottingham Forest have appointed Billy Davies as their new manager to replace Alex McLeish, who departed the club by mutual consent on Monday.

 

The Scot previously enjoyed a spell as Forest boss between 2008 and 2011 and Davies is delighted to be given a second chance at the City Ground.
Davies told the club's official website: "It is a privilege and an honour to be back in charge of the Reds. As my new friend (chairman Al Hasawi) Fawaz says I have unfinished business here at Forest and am relishing this great opportunity to return Forest to its former glory.
"My tenure at the City Ground was cut short last time and I can't wait to get my boots back on and training the lads. We have a great squad and I know I can get the best from them. Coming home to The Reds is a dream come true."
Davies has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with Forest but the 48-year-old will not be in charge for the trip to Bristol City this weekend, with assistant boss Rob Kelly set to pick the team at Ashton Gate.
Davies will be in the stands on Saturday and will take charge of Forest on Monday, his first game will be the visit of Bolton Wanderers on February 16.
Forest are 2.40 to see off Bristol City on Saturday, the draw is 3.40 and the Robins can be backed at 2.80.
