McLeish has point to prove at Forest

New Nottingham Forest boss Alex McLeish says he was "drained" after he was sacked by Aston Villa but is delighted to be back managing again and is hopeful of winning promotion this season.

McLeish admits he was "surprised" to be offered the job but is positive about the position the club are in the league.

The former Rangers manager also admits there may be room to bring in "one or two" players in January, but only if they can improve the current squad.
