Sky Sports News reported earlier this week that Cooper would not survive a fifth straight Premier League defeat, with Evangelos Marinakis, Forest’s owner, seriously considering changing manager.

 

However, the performance and result at Molineux has placated Marinakis to a degree, and the Greek businessman has now shelved any plans to sack Cooper in the coming days.

 

Marinakis was apparently impressed by the spirit and fight shown by Forest’s players in the 1-1 draw, which is believed to have shown they still have belief in Cooper.

 

The manager made seven changes to the side that were mauled 5-0 at Craven Cottage on Wednesday.

 

Cooper’s name was sung throughout the trip to Molineux by Forest fans. After waving to the away end at full-time, Cooper denied he was saying goodbye to supporters during his post-match press conference.

 

It was reported before the draw with Wolves that Forest’s hierarchy were increasingly of the belief that fresh ideas were needed and that there was a difference in opinion between the coaching staff and players over tactics.
