Darren Huckerby shares his thoughts on Forest’s situation

City Ground

Nottingham Forest suffered another defeat in the Championship last night.

Former Norwich City player Darren Huckerby feels Nottingham Forest’s current situation is a shambles and suggests on social networking site Twitter that the supporters deserve better.

The Reds suffered a third straight loss in the Championship last night after they let slip a one goal advantage at the Madejski Stadium to lose 2-1 to fellow mid-table side Reading.

It completes a miserable Easter for Forest, having previously lost to East Midlands rivals Derby County before being thumped 3-0 at home to lowly Brentford at the weekend.

Manager-less, loaded with debt, crippled with injuries and with seemingly no light at the end of the tunnel, it’s been a dire campaign for Forest and owner Fawaz Al-Hawasi has a lot to be held accountable for.

Responding to a fan on Twitter, former player Huckerby says the Forest’s situation is a shambles.

With the club under an embargo, many felt that Dougie Freedman was doing an admirable job in bringing through the youngsters, playing decent counter-attacking football and maintaining position.

Yet, Al-Hawasi made him his fifth managerial casualty in less than four years, sacking him unexpectedly not long after the club had undertaken an impressive 13-game unbeaten Championship run.

With the club now lying in 17th position, Freedman’s dismissal with no replacement in mind illustrated yet another rash decision and their Championship status could now be under threat.
