Here's how the Championship table looks since Nottingham Forest sacked Dougie Freedman

City Ground

Nottingham Forest have struggled since firing Dougie Freedman.

It is over a month since Nottingham Forest fired Dougie Freedman, looking for a fresh approach in the dugout.

Paul Williams was appointed as interim manager until the end of the season with oft-injured player Andy Reid joining as his assistant.

Their spell in charge began with a defeat to East Midlands rivals Derby County, and it has not got much better.

They are still looking for their first win, and the Championship table since Freedman was fired on March 13 makes grim reading for Forest fans.

Forest sit in the relegation zone during this period, playing a game more than the teams below them, Bolton and MK Dons, with the former already relegated.

The poor run only highlights how important it is that Forest get their next appointment right and show an improvement next season, but it will be important that they get fans back onside by recording a win between now and the end of the campaign.

Fortunately they accrued enough points under Freedman that they are seemingly safe from relegation, in 18th place with 48 points overall, nine clear of the drop zone.
