Chris Hughton has been sacked as Nottingham Forest manager this morning after their sixth defeat in seven Championship games last night - a 2-0 loss to Middlesbrough.
The 62-year-old leaves after eleven months with the Reds with the club currently sat at the foot of table on one point – three points below Peterborough.
Hughton guided them to a 17th place finish last season, however it was looking like relegation was becoming more inevitable this time round after their terrible start to the campaign.
The Midlands side will now be keen to bring in someone who can turn their season around and bump them up the table.
Here are the favourites to replace Chris Hughton according to Sky Bet...
1. Steve Cooper - 8/11
Steve Cooper is currently favourite to take over at Nottingham Forest following his departure from Swansea City in July. The Welshmen guided the Swans to the play-off final last season, however lost out to Brentford.
