Forest immediately revealed their intention to appeal, claiming they were “extremely disappointed” and “extremely dismayed” by the ruling in a statement.

It has now been reported by The Athletic that their appeal has been unsuccessful.

And their four-point penalty remains in place.

The decision to uphold the ruling of the independent commission means Forest stay 17th in the table on 29 points.

It means the club are three points above Luton in 18th and five clear of Burnley in 19th.

There are just two games to go this season.

Since being handed the points deduction they have found themselves embroiled in a relegation battle.

Forest are not the only team to have been found guilty of breaching PSR rules this season.

Everton have been docked a total of eight points for two separate charges.

Their initial ten-point deduction was reduced to six upon appeal, before an extra two were tagged on for a separate breach.

Sean Dyche‘s side have since clambered away from relegation worries.

Where clubs in danger stand…

Everton

Initial 10 point deduction for 2021-22 breaches reduced to six points on appeal. Now deducted a further two points.

Manchester City

Etihad club emphatically denies the 115 allegations laid against them in February 2023. The lengthy Commission case has been scheduled to start in October or November but a final decision is not expected until March or April 2025.

Chelsea

Blues chiefs flagged up illicit payments made to agents and others during the Roman Abramovich era. Fined £8.6m by Uefa but still to be formally charged by the Prem despite an ongoing investigation.

Leicester

Foxes breached Prem PSR loss limits last season but did not have to report their 2022-23 accounts until this month because of their relegation. That puts the timetable back and means that they will probably face a Prem points deduction next term.
