Chris Hughton, the Nottingham Forest manager

Should his Nottingham Forest side fail to win for the 13th league game in a row when they host Middlesbrough tonight, it’s almost certain that Chris Hughton will fall on his sword and that once-mighty club will embark on the hunt for a new manager for the 18th time in 10 years.

A dull midweek tussle between two sides from the bottom half of England’s second tier should really have no relevance to this country, but another stumble by Hughton’s bottom-of-the-table side and another sacking by Forest will cause a ripple at least.
