Ian Holloway raves about Dougie Freedman, highlights two massive positives at Forest

The pundit has been discussing the Nottingham Forest boss in glowing terms.

Ian Holloway believes Dougie Freedman deserves 'huge credit' for what he's currently doing at Nottingham Forest, according to his regular predictions column for Sky Sports.

The City Ground outfit are on a strong run of form and the pundit is excited about what Freedman is achieving at Forest.

And he believes the manager's ability to stabilise the club is a massive positive.

He has also emphasised Freedman's relationship with Nottingham Forest chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi.

Holloway told Sky Sports: "Dougie Freedman deserves huge credit for what he's doing at Forest. He's ticking all the boxes and stabilising the club and the relationship between him and the chairman looks strong. It looks a great fit."

Forest are currently 11th in the Championship following an extended unbeaten run in the league.

The Midlands outfit are also only nine points off the play-off places and could be just six if other results go their way this weekend and they win at Leeds United.

Freedman was under pressure earlier this season but has certainly swung the momentum in his favour at the City Ground.

How far can Forest go during their strong run?
