Reports have surfaced this evening that Nottingham Forest manager Stuart Pearce has stepped down from his role at the club.

This is believed to have taken place following a meeting earlier this afternoon with the club’s chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi according to Telegraph writer John Percy.

The news comes as no surprise to some if it is true after what has been a very disappointing season for Forest reached a new low with a 1-0 home defeat to lowly Millwall.

Forest currently sit 12th in the table and 13 points off of the play-offs and a further seven behind the automatic spots, where many tipped Forest to finish at the start of the season.

The Reds have won just eight of their 28 Championship games so far and picked up just one win in their last ten league games. They were also dumped out of the FA Cup by League 1 Rochdale.

The club is yet to make a statement on the issue, but we will break the news as and when it comes.
