Fawaz Al Hasawi reacts on Twitter to Nottingham Forest's latest defeat

Nottingham Forest were beaten 2-1 by Reading yesterday.

Nottingham Forest owner Fawaz Al Hasawi has suggested that the club’s main aim is now to ensure that they are a Championship side next season.

Forest have won just one of their last 12 league matches, and while they remain well clear of the drop zone as things stand they will need one more victory to feel totally assured of their status as a second tier side.

The Reds are currently nine points clear of the relegation zone, with just six matches remaining.

Forest were beaten 2-1 by Reading yesterday evening, and Al Hasawi has sympathised with his side’s supporters as their frustrations rise.

Al Hasawi controversially opted to sack Dougie Freedman last month, and the side’s form has taken a turn for the worse since.

Under Paul Williams’ guidance, Forest have failed to win any of their last four matches, and they have a match against promotion chasing Brighton & Hove Albion next on their schedule.

Al Hasawi did provide Forest supporters with some reason for cheer, though, as he insisted that the transfer embargo would be lifted soon - and he also confirmed that the club are close to appointing a new CEO.
