Nottingham Forest have reportedly made an approach to Burton to speak to Nigel Clough about their vacant managerial role – and the club’s supporters have a divided opinion on Twitter.

Sky Sports claim that the Midlands giants have asked Championship rivals if they can speak to Clough as they look for a replacement for the recently sacked Philippe Montanier.

He is a legend at the City Ground after 324 appearances as a player, while his late father Brian is regarded as one of the club’s best ever managers after winning back-to-back Euroepan titles.

Forest are currently facing a relegation battle and are just five points above the drop zone after 28 games.

The club’s supporters have voiced divided opinions on Twitter about the Clough speculation as some feel the fan favourite could do a steady job as manager, while others don’t think he is good enough for the position.

A number of fans were more concerned with owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi and feel that no manager has a chance under his tenure.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Forest are in serious danger of dropping down into League One and have won just once in their last 10 games across all competitions.

The Reds are currently in their ninth consecutive season in the Championship and are desperate to get back to the top-flight.

Clough has managerial experience of two spell with Burton, as well as taking charge of Derby and Sheffield United.
