Another League One manager has bitten the dust - this time it's Nottingham Forest manager Gary Megson who's paid the price for poor results and has left the City Ground 'by mutual consent'.
Megson replaced former boss Joe Kinnear at Forest this time last year but with the club already struggling couldn't stop their eventual relegation into League One. This season has consistently been a struggle for Megson who was expected to take Forest straight back up to the Championship. In reality they have been the epitome of mid-table mediocrity, their excellent home form masking the failings of their appalling away record. After spendng over £1 million pounds on strikers Nathan Tyson and Grant Holt in January results had to improve, but 1 win in the last 10 games tells its own story and with Forest 13th in the table with 41 points - only 3 ahead of the Glovers! - the end for Megson was inevitable. First team coach Alan Crawford has also departed.
Reserve team coach Ian McParland and Megson’s assistant Frank Barlow are expected to be confirmed as caretaker managers ahead of this weekend's L1 fixture at Port Vale.
