Rumours linking Nigel Clough to Forest 'all speculation'

Burton Albion assistant manager Andy Garner has played down speculation that Brewers boss Nigel Clough could be in the running for the vacant manager position at Nottingham Forest.

Clough made more than 300 appearances for Forest in the 80s and 90s and his father Brian managed the club for almost two decades.

The role is currently vacant after Forest sacked manager Philippe Montanier after just 6 months in charge.

Chesterfield have appointed former Wigan boss Gary Caldwell as their new manager.

The 34-year-old Scot succeeds Danny Wilson, who was sacked on January 8 following a miserable run of 13 defeats in 18 Sky Bet League One matches which left the Spireites in the relegation zone.

Experienced player Ritchie Humphreys, the current PFA chairman, oversaw the 4-0 defeat at Luton in the EFL Trophy and Saturday's 1-0 league victory over fellow strugglers Coventry but Caldwell now takes charge ahead of the visit of AFC Wimbledon at the weekend.
