Nottingham Forest have appealed against their four-point deduction in the Premier League.

Forest were plunged into the relegation zone last week after an independent commission ruled that they had breached the league’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules.

The Premier League said Forest admitted breaching PSR by £34.5m above their permitted threshold of £61m.

Forest, who consulted lawyers before deciding to appeal, were disappointed with the ruling and said the process has “harmed the trust and confidence we had in the Premier League”.

Forest had no further statement to make about the matter on Monday when they confirmed their appeal.

“Nottingham Forest can confirm that it has today lodged an appeal against the four-point sanction imposed by the Commission in relation to the club’s breach of the Premier League’s Profit & Sustainability Rules (PSR),” the statement read.

“The club will not be making any further statement at this time.”

The Premier League also confirmed the news in a statement on Monday, which read: “Nottingham Forest Football Club has appealed the decision of an independent Commission to impose a four-point deduction on the club, after its admission of a breach of the Premier League’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules.

“The club lodged the appeal to the Chair of the Judicial Panel today, who will now appoint an Appeal Board to hear the case.”

Everton were docked 10 points in November for breaching PSR in the period up to the 2021-22 season, which was reduced to six on appeal.

A second complaint against the Toffees over a breach in the period up to last season is still being dealt with.
