N Forest vs Brentford
Sky Bet Chboat
3:00pm Saturday 5th October
The City Ground
Stand-in Nottingham Forest captain Ben Watson scored his next City Ground winner at consecutive games as their unbeaten Sky Bet Championship run extended to 10 games.
Watson, deputising using Michael Dawson sidelined for a second game with a calf injury as skipper, hadnt scored for years before his attack which beat against Barnsley 1-0 at home.
The midfielder was again the gap against the Bees, scoring a gorgeous 12-yard volley at the 56th minute to lift Forest up to next in the table, level on points with leaders that are fresh West Brom.
It was a objective of excellent quality within an match which had to wait with the climbing 20-yard strike of Joe Lolley, till the 16th minute because of its opportunity following a surging run from inside the circle.
It was not until 10 minutes later although Brice Samba scooped up a low drive from Josh DaSilva, that a unsatisfactory Brentford side carved out their very first chance.
Forest countered, culminating in the pull of Lewis Grabban back in the area teeing up Tiago Silva but, Mathias Jensen was able to earn a battle, together with punishment shouts rightly ignored, just as the Portuguese midfielder was going to let fly.
Silvaalmost broke the deadlock at the 34th minute, hitting a 25-yard past Raya pole after Julian Jeanvier had brought down Yuri Ribeiro.
Brentford reacted after Watsons mis-timed tackle on Sergi Canos with a dead-ball delivery of the .
By 35 yards Jensens curler took a deflection off the wall, forcing a Samba that was nine-hole after he had originally set off to his right to hit clear with his left.
The breakthrough came 11 minutes spawned by a sensational intervention by Bees skipper Pontus Jansson away for a corner as the striker and since he took off the ball the toes of Grabban lined up an angled drive.
However from the inswinging delivery, inadvertently flicked on by Jeanvier in the post of Silva, Joe Worrall supplied a padded header towards Watson who then hit a volley past Raya.
After Bryan Mbuemo struck an increasing drive from the edge of the region that was two yards over the 33, the closest the visitors came to an equaliser was only after the hour.
On the contrary, it was Forest who ought to have added to their tally but Silva flashed a 15-yard shot past Rayas left wing post, whereas Sammy Ameobi – who had replaced Joao Carvalho in the 64th minute – driven a nice low stop from your Brentford goalkeeper nine minutes in time.
