Dougie Freedman has been sacked as manager of Sky Bet Championship side Nottingham Forest.

The Reds, who were expected to be pushing for promotion this season, have lost five of their last six matches and were beaten 3-0 by 10-man Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

They currently lie 14th in the table, 14 points off the Owls who currently occupy the final play-off spot.

That has prompted chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi to part company with the 41-year-old Scot, who has been in charge at the City Ground since February 2015.

A brief statement read: "Nottingham Forest have terminated manager Dougie Freedman's contract with immediate effect.

"The club would like to thank Dougie for all of his efforts during his time at The City Ground.

"First-team coach Paul Williams will take over the management of the side until the end of the season.

"The club will be making no further comment at this time."
