Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies is again at loggerheads with David Pleat.
Davies was furious after Forestâ€™s much maligned transfer panel â€“ headed by football consultant Pleat â€“ failed to make a single signing in January for the second successive season, reports the Daily Star.
And the Forest bossâ€™ frustration only increased when promotion rivals Newcastle made six signings, while West Brom recruited two.
He said: "It is no secret that I wanted three players during the January transfer window, in different positions. I am obviously disappointed but will work to the best of my ability with what we have got.
"There are a lot of points still to be won. And we have got to go and put together a second run. Whether we win the next game or lose it, we know what we have to do to get over the line."
