Nottingham Forest are on the lookout for a new manager following the recent departure of Mark Warburton.

Warburton was dismissed as the Forest manager on New Year’s Eve following a run of disappointing results in the Championship.

At the start of the season, the Reds were expected to at least push for a place in the top six, but the City Ground are in danger of getting relegated to League One at the end of the season.

According to odds on Sky Bet, Barnsley manager Paul Heckingbottom is the favourite for the Forest job, with Gus Poyet second favourite.

Nigel Clough, who is in charge of Burton Albion at the moment, is the third favourite for the Forest managerial role with odds of 5/1.

The 51-year-old started his professional club football career at Forest and played for the Reds in the 1980s and the 1990s.

Clough managed Forest’s bitter rivals Derby County from 2009 and 2013 and did a good job at the Rams.
