Crossing and finishing – Issue 18 (January 2012)
Steve Cotterill took charge at Nottingham Forest having joined from fellow npower Championship side Portsmouth in October 2011.
Prior to arriving at the City Ground, Cotterill had built a reputation as a dynamic young manager, leading Cheltenham Town from the Conference to League One, before spells at Stoke City, Sunderland, Burnley and Notts County. In total, he has achieved four promotions as a manager.
Financial worries at Portsmouth hampered his progress on the south coast, although under difficult conditions he did ensure the club’s Championship status, and has now embarked on a similar repair mission at Forest.
As a player, he turned out for Burton Albion, Wimbledon, Brighton & Hove Albion and Bournemouth.
