Sabri Lamouchi faces an uncertain future as Nottingham Forest boss after the capitulation on his part cost them a chance at promotion.
Forest only needed one point from their last two games against Stoke and Barnsley to secure a championship play-off, but they lost both games and Stoke’s 4-1 home loss meant that Swansea moved them into sixth place on goal difference.
Lamouchi only signed a new two-year deal for a month when the playoffs seemed a certainty, but Sports email understand Forest’s pitiful ending to the campaign has questioned his position.

It is thought that the Frenchman received no guarantees when discussing the future with the club hierarchy in the days following the Stoke game.
The City Ground has not been a comfortable place for managers in recent years, with Lamouchi being the first to complete a full season at the helm since Billy Davies did in 2010-11.
Lamouchi is the fourth permanent boss Forest has since Evangelos Marinakis, who also owns Olympiacos, took control of the club in May 2017.
