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.

In the Championship, Burton took on Birmingham City - the first time the two sides had ever met competitively.

Former Blues man Lloyd Dyer opened the scoring, getting on the end of a Jamie Ward pass to make it one nil.

Ward then went onto make it two nil in the sixty second minute - and that is how it stayed, giving the Brewers their fourth win of the season.
