Former caretaker duo Gary Brazil and Jack Lester are expected to continue their good work at Nottingham Forest under new manager Mark Warburton according to the Nottingham Post.

The Reds announced that Warburton would replace the pair at the helm earlier this week leaving Brazil and Lester’s long term future in doubt.

In the short term, the duo were expected to return to their former roles working with the club’s academy and it has now been reported that the popular pair are likely to resume their original jobs on a long term basis after positive discussions with new boss Warburton.

Brazil has spent almost five years working with Nottingham Forest’s youngsters, helping a number of players graduate to the first team squad. The 54-year-old became the club’s academy manager in 2014 while he has twice taken charge of the first team on a caretaker basis.

Former Forest striker Lester returned to The City Ground in August 2014 to manage the club’s Under-18 side. The former evergreen frontman also has an impressive record within the Forest academy and has built a strong relationship with Brazil.

New Reds boss Warburton takes charge of his first match on Saturday when Forest entertain bitter rivals Derby County.
