Nottingham Forest secured their future in the Championship with a 3-0 victory over Ipswich on the final day of the 2016/17 season, which meant that they remained in the second tier at the expense of Blackburn Rovers, with goal difference alone separating the two sides.

The unlikely victory will secure Mark Warburton’s place at the City Ground helm ahead of the 2017/18 campaign. Yet, the former Rangers boss will know all too well that results need to improve if he is to retain his place at the club for the foreseeable future. Management is a demanding game and, should the team start the season with a flurry of defeats, Warburton could find himself out of a job before he has really had time to settle in.

Yet, if Nottingham Forest do decide to part ways with Warburton, who could they get in to take him place, and would they be able to keep the club in the Championship past next season?

Kenny Jackett was linked with the job prior to Warburton’s arrival in February, and is likely to be among the frontrunners once again should the job become available. Nottingham Forest need a manager that is capable of taking a lowly Championship side beyond their means and Jackett certainly fits the bill. He was successfully able to take Millwall and Wolverhampton Wanderers from League One to the Championship, before guiding them to strong finishes in their first seasons back in the second tier.

While there have been plenty of low points in Jackett’s managerial career, he isn’t one to jump from club to club, spending an average of three seasons with each side that he has managed, which could help to bring some consistency to Nottingham Forest.

If the board decide that Jackett isn’t their man, they could turn their attention to Gary Rowett, who recently took over as manager of promotion chasing side Derby County. The emerging talent was approached by the club in January, before they decided to opt for Warburton, but he would undoubtedly be on their radar once again should they part ways with their current manager.

While his managerial career is still young, he has already racked up plenty of experience at this level, having transformed Birmingham City from relegation candidates to play-off hopefuls in just two years. It would take some doing to pry him away from Derby, but the right offer could certainly turn his head.

Should the club prefer to look outside of the UK for their next appointment, Red Bull Salzburg manager Oscar Garcia could be a good fit. While the Spaniard has the experience of representing the likes of Salzburg and Maccabi Tel Aviv overseas, he has also managed both Brighton & Hove Albion and Watford, two teams that have been among the second tier’s finest in recent years, meaning it will require very little time for him to adjust to Championship football.

Garcia is doing well in Austria, having won back-to-back titles with the club, and will be reluctant to leave. Yet, the lure of English football is hard to resist, which could make him both an achievable and reliable target for Nottingham Forest.
