Defiant Davies will stick it out

Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies insisted there was no chance of him walking away from the City Ground after a 2-1 win over Coventry.

Goals from Radoslaw Majewski and Chris Cohen gave Forest the points after defender Luke Chambers had headed in an own goal which put Coventry ahead.

Davies had faced questions over his commitment over the weekend with suggestions that he was spending too much time back in Scotland. But the former Derby manager remains determined to lead the club into the Premier League - despite claiming after the draw with Watford on Saturday that his side was not good enough for promotion. He said: "I keep a diary of every conversation I have at the club and I also keep a complete list of how many hours I work here.

"If anybody at this club wants a conversation with me I will fly my lawyer in. I am very comfortable with that. There is no chance I will walk away and I will continue to work the best that I can. This club has received approaches for me in the past and turned them down. With regards to my commitment, in the past I could have easily put pressure on the club to leave but I am delighted to be here and determined to finish the job and get this club into the Premier League."
