Billy Davies has hailed guiding Nottingham Forest to Championship safety as the proudest moment of his footballing career so far.
Reading's victory over Norwich at Carrow Road this evening confirmed Forest's survival.
And a delighted Davies told us: "I've got to say a big thank you to everyone at the football club - the players, the staff, the auxiliary staff and, most importantly, the fans.
"It has been a wonderful, wonderful effort from all concerned and we should enjoy what has been an outstanding achievement.
"To date, it's Billy Davies' best achievement.
"When I look at the details of what we've been through, what we came into and where this young team had found itself, I've no doubt it's my proudest moment in football so far.
"And that's saying something when you look at my track record in previous years.
"I'm very, very proud to have kept this club up along with my staff; I'm very proud of the players' efforts and proud for everyone concerned."
