The Al Hasawi family completed their takeover at the City Ground in July and quickly made the decision to dispense with manager Steve Cotterill and bring back former coach Sean O'Driscoll, who had recently agreed to take charge at Crawley, as boss.

The Kuwaiti owners changed the manager again before the turn of the year, surprisingly sacking O'Driscoll on Boxing Day following a 4-2 home win over Leeds before quickly appointing Alex McLeish.

Chairman Al Hasawi insists he has the best interests of the club at heart and has called for Forest fans to get behind McLeish and the players.

"I respect people and their opinions, but let's wait until the end of the season and see," he told the club's official website.

"Last season, Forest did not do well. They finished towards the bottom of the table. This season we are up there, we are near to the play-offs. We have made things better.

"I wish for people to be behind us and the team. If, by the end, it turns out that I have done things wrong or badly, people can say what they want. But let's wait, because there are 19 games to go and, as I said, if we can win 12 of those, we will have a good chance."

Al Hasawi added: "To be honest, I want to look for the best. We want to move forward. Maybe lots of the supporters; lots of the people in Nottingham did not like what happened in the end (with O'Driscoll).

"But I would like them to give the new manager a chance, the chance to work hard with us and achieve something."
