The experienced Scot has the Reds well-placed to win promotion, as they currently sit third in the Championship.[LNB]A recent wobble on the road has put a serious dent in their hopes of securing automatic promotion, but a play-off place is virtually guaranteed.[LNB]Success has been achieved with a thin squad, with injuries having rocked the Reds at crucial times.[LNB]Davies has also seen his hands tied in the market, with Forest's much-maligned transfer committee failing to back their boss in January.[LNB]He feels Forest are 'punching above their weight' heading down the final stretch and admits the odds are stacked against his side securing a place in the top-flight.[LNB]"If we can finish the job off, it'll be a remarkable achievement," Davies said.[LNB]"If that happens, I'll get an MBE, an OBE and a visit to see the Pope.[LNB]"At Derby and Preston (his former clubs) the squads were much deeper at this stage. We're punching above our weight but we're proud of what we've done."[LNB]Davies missed Saturday's post-game press conference, following a 1-0 win over Peterborough, sending assistant David Kelly to speak with the media instead.[LNB]He had been openly critical of the Forest board once again ahead of the match, but insists that had no bearing on his decision to steer away from the limelight.[LNB]"I wasn't hiding or avoiding questions, I stand by comments," he said.[LNB][LNB] Coca Cola Ch'ship Promotion 09/10 Win Outright: Nott'm Forest 5/2
