Forest To Face New Fulham Manager

A weekend that began with speculation about Nottingham Forest boss Dougie Freedman ended with the Scot leading his side to a crucial victory against local rivals Derby County.

Heading into the international break, the Reds will now hope to get more players back to fitness and look to build on the Rams win ahead of a busy schedule of eight matches between the visit to Brentford on 21 November and the end of 2015.

Fulham provide the opposition for one of those games, at the City Ground on 5 December, and the West London side should have a new man at the helm by then after Saturday's 5-2 home defeat by Birmingham City marked the end for Symons.

The 44-year-old becomes the seventh manager in the division to lose his job this season.
