Soccer – Clough turns Forest down

Nigel Clough says he is determined to keep Burton Albion in the Championship after rejecting the chance to become Nottingham Forest's new manager. The 50-year-old former Derby County and Sheffield United boss held talks with Forest about the role before opting to remain with the Brewers. Forest sacked Philippe Montanier earlier this month and are 19th in the Championship table, two points ahead of Burton, who won 2-1 at QPR on Saturday. Clough said: "Having started this historic season in the Championship it is only right that we should stay and continue the job of trying to achieve the miracle of keeping Burton Albion in the Championship. Staying is the right thing to do." Burton, 1/1 with bet365 to be relegated this season, are 14/5 to beat Fulham on Wednesday.
