Bolton’s Neil Lennon comments on Nottingham Forest’s promotion chances

Forest City Ground

Bolton Wanderers will take on Nottingham Forest at home in the Championship today.

Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon has been quoted as saying by the club’s official Twitter page that Nottingham Forest can get promoted to the Premier League.

The former Celtic boss made the comments on the eve of Bolton’s Championship game against Forest at the Macron Stadium.

Forest are one of the biggest clubs in England, and one suspects that they will be determined to finish in the top six of the Championship this season.

The Reds are under a transfer embargo at the moment and have not been able to make the type of signings that they have in recent years.

However, manager Dougie Freedman has a good bunch of players who are hungry for success.

Forest, though, need to step up their game and start getting results if they want to enhance their chances of finishing in the top six of the Championship this term.

The Reds started their 2015-16 Championship campaign with a 1-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion away from home.

Freedman’s side then lost 4-3 to Walsall at the City Ground in the first round of the League Cup, before getting the better of Rotherham United 2-1 at home in the league last weekend.

On Tuesday evening, Forest played out a goalless draw with Charlton Athletic at the City Ground in the Championship.
