N Forest vs Brentford
Sky Bet Chboat
3:00pm Saturday 5th October
The City Ground
Stand-in Nottingham Forest captain Ben Watson scored as their unbeaten Sky Bet Championship run stretched to 10 games with a 1-0 triumph over 36, his second City Ground winner in consecutive games.
Watson, deputising as skipper using Michael Dawson sidelined for a second successive game with a calf injury, hadnt scored for three-and-a-half years prior to his attack which beat against Barnsley 1-0 at home a fortnight past.
The midfielder was the gap against the Bees, scoring a gorgeous volley at the 56th minute to lift Forest up to next at the table, level on points with new leaders West Brom.
It was a objective of exceptional quality within an match which had to wait together with Joe Lolleys climbing strike, till the 16th minute for its very first chance after a run from within the center circle comfortably taken by David Raya.
It was not though Brice Samba awakened a low push from Josh DaSilva a disappointing Brentford side carved out their first opportunity.
Forest swiftly countered, culminating in Lewis Grabbans pull back into the area teeing Tiago Silva up but, Mathias Jensen managed to earn a struggle, together with penalty shouts rightly ignored in the same way the Portuguese midfielder was about to let fly.
The deadlock at the 34th minute , however, almost broke, after Yuri Ribeiro had been brought down by Julian Jeanvier hitting a 25-yard past Raya pole.
Together with the last kick of the halfof Brentford reacted using a dead-ball delivery in the own.
Jensens curler took a deflection off the wall, forcing a scampering Samba after he had initially set off to his best to hit clear to his left.
The breakthrough finally came 11 minutes after the interval, spawned by a intervention against Bees skipper Pontus Jansson because he lined an angled drive and off for a corner because the striker took the ball off the toes of Grabban.
But from Silva delivery flicked by Jeanvier in the post, Joe Worrall provided a padded header towards Watson who then struck a thunderous volley.
When Bryan Mbuemo struck an increasing drive from the border of the area that was two yards over the 33, was just after the hour.
On the contrary, it was Forest who should have added to their tally but first Silva flashed a 15-yard shot past Rayas left wing post, whereas Sammy Ameobi – whod replaced Joao Carvalho at the 64th minute – forced a fine low stop in your Brentford goalkeeper nine minutes in time.
