​Hughton set to quit as manager of Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest manager Chris Hughton is set to depart in the coming hours or days.

Forest have a measly point from their first seven Championship matches of the season.

They have lost five of those matches by a single goal, with the Daily Mirror suggesting Hughton may be replaced by ex-Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder at some stage this term.

After their 2-0 loss to Middlesbrough, Hughton admitted he is very worried.

He said: "It's a very concerning and very difficult situation.

"It's not very comfortable and I am the manager, so I take responsibility for that, irrespective of the circumstances and whether the squad is strong enough.

"Managers are judged on results, so there has to be a very quick turnaround, but I just have to digest this performance, think about where we can improve and prepare for another tough game in three days' time."
