Nigel Clough given permission by Burton Chairman to speak to Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest are in real danger of getting dragged into the relegation scrap in the Championship and are looking to Burton Albion's boss, Nigel Clough to get them out of a mess.

The Clough name is for ever linked with Forest with Nigel's father Brian Clough steering the Tricky Trees to league and European success in the 1970s and 80s.

Burton Albion have given permission for Clough to talk to Forest about the vacant job at the City ground.

Burton are currently in trouble themselves with 25 points - five behind Forest who are just outside the relegation zone.
