Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies cannot wait for their Championship opener against Burnley at Turf Moor. Forest, who were beaten by Blackpool in the play-off semi-finals last season, are again among the favourites to challenge for promotion to the Barclays Premier League. They face a Burnley side who are back in the second tier following last season`s relegation and Davies is relishing the task. Speaking to the club's official website, he said: "I'm looking forward to the challenge and I know the players and my staff feel exactly the same way. "I always relish the start of a new season. There's great optimism but as ever there's also great passion and commitment as well. "It's a fantastic challenge again for us - there are exciting times to look forward to, so bring it on."
