Relegation looms as Nottingham hit with points deduction

Nottingham Forest has expressed deep disappointment and dismay over the Premier League’s decision to deduct four points from the club for breaching the Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR).

This deduction has pushed Forest into the relegation zone, intensifying the pressure as they now sit in 18th position, one point behind Luton, who have moved up to 17th, with only nine games remaining in the season.

The Premier League stated that Forest admitted to breaching the PSR by £34.5m above their permitted threshold of £61m.

While clubs are typically allowed maximum losses of £105m over a three-year assessment period, this limit is reduced by £22m per season for any seasons within the period spent in the Championship.

Forest’s discontent extends to the Premier League’s submission to the independent commission, which imposed the sanction.

The club claims that its trust in the governing body has been eroded, especially after the Premier League initially pushed for a six-point sanction
