Championship: Billy Davies looks set leave Nottingham Forest after 5-0 defeat to Derby


Billy Davies' second reign in charge of Nottingham Forest looks set to be over, with sources indicating that he and the club will part ways again today.

Saturday's 5-0 humiliation at the hands of their east midlands rivals Derby was a very bitter pill to swallow. The implications of the loss were numerous, apart from being a heavy defeat to their fiercest rivals, Derby are also vying for promotion, and now have a significant points advantage over Forest.

This was also Forest's eighth game without a win, which has seen their promotion hopes dashed with them now out of the play-off spots, where they had been situated for most of the season.

We understand from our sources that rumours around the cub that Davies and his backroom staff are leaving the club are indeed true, something further indicated by their absence from the club's training ground this (Monday) morning.

Davies began his second spell in charge at Forest in February 2013. Ironically, after his first spell in charge, he was replaced by Steve McClaren, who is now in charge of the Derby side that have seemingly sealed his fate second time round.
