Former Forest boss Davies in frame for return
Championship Nottingham Forest are set to name their new boss within 48 hours, with former manager Billy Davies the overwhelming favourite, reports BBC Nottingham. Davies is odds-on with nearly all bookmakers to succeed his fellow Scot.
Davies, who managed the club between January 2009 and June 2011, twice led the club to the Championship play-offs.
The 48-year-old also held talks with Blackpool over the vacant manager's position but no deal was agreed.
