Freedman achieves in four games at Forest what took him final two months at Bolton

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman has enjoyed a brilliant start at his new club.

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman has given the Championship giants a fresh lease of life since he came into the club and replaced Stuart Pearce as manager.

In fact he’s been so effective at Forest that it’s taken him his first four games with the team to achieve a stat, which took him roughly two months to achieve at former club Bolton before he was given his marching orders.

Forest have nudged their way back up the Championship table since Freedman came in as manager and they currently sit in ninth place on 44 points.

The play-off places are 12 points away as things stand, but if Forest can maintain the winning run they have created under Freedman, there’s no reason a top six finish isn’t possible before the end of the campaign.

The manager is going to be challenged in terms of how he keeps his side effective because opposition teams are going to be studying detailed footage of the differences between his Forest team and the one which was handled by Pearce.

If Forest can keep the momentum going then Wolves and Brentford will shortly be nervously looking over their shoulders.
