Cotterill - It Will Be Huge If We Stay Up

Steve Cotterill says that if the club manages to avoid relegation this season, it will be his greatest ever managerial achievement.

He told the Daily Star. "It will be huge if we stay up, a feat bigger than when I was at Portsmouth. That`s because of the way the Forest squad had been run for a ­couple of years and the unbalanced mess it was in. We`d used nine different ­partnerships at the back and so many players are out of contract in the summer, which is ludicrous.'

When Cotterill took over the reigns from former England manager Steve McClaren back in October, Forest were 2nd from bottom in the Championship table. It's fair to say that the Reds' have been less than impressive for the majority of Cotterill's time in charge, but it does seem in recent games that we may just be hitting the sort of form we need to win the battle against relegation.

Forest go in to today's game at Crystal Palace with the chance to go 4 games unbeaten for the first time this campaign. The past 3 results have seen an emphatic 7-3 away win at Leeds, a credible 1-1 draw at home to Brighton, followed up with a decent point at Leicester in mid week in a 0-0 draw. There's still along way to go with 7 games still to play, but for the first time since Cotterill joined the club, it does look like we may have enough in the tank to avoid the drop.
