Relegation battle set to go to the wire

Forest fail in appeal against points deduction

2024/05/07 12:23

It has been confirmed that Nottingham Forest have failed in their appeal against the points deduction they received from the Premier League earlier this season.

During the March international break, Nottingham Forest were deducted four points from their tally as a result of breaching the league’s Profit & Sustainability Rules. 

They were the second team to be deducted points for the same reason after Everton were handed a ten-point deduction in November. However, the Toffees eventually had that reduced to six points after an appeal.

Forest, though, have not been able to overturn or soften the decision and that means they head into the final couple of weeks of this season firmly involved in the relegation battle.

They will begin the weekend sitting just three points above the bottom three and the relegation places and five above of Burnley, who they face at Turf Moor on the final day.

Forest host Chelsea this weekend with Luton going to West Ham for David Moyes’ last home game in charge of the Irons, whilst Burnley face Tottenham. 

If both Luton and Burnley pick up wins and Forest are beaten by in-form Chelsea then we will head into a fascinating final day in which Luton, level with Nuno Espirito Santo’s men, host Fulham and Forest go to Burnley, just two points ahead of the Clarets.

Disappointing news for Nottingham Forest fans. The four-point deduction stands and now we're really in for a nail-biting end to the season. Let's hope we can secure our place in the Premier League.

As a football fan, I am disappointed to hear that Nottingham Forest's appeal against their points deduction has been unsuccessful. This decision puts them in a precarious position in the relegation battle. Hopefully, they can secure enough points to stay in the Premier League.

Absolutely gutted for Forest. Another hit to our already struggling season.
