Football Scores: Nottingham Forest 2-0 Coventry

Nottingham Forest secured their fourth consecutive win as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the midweek action in the Championship. Brennan Johnson opened the scoring in the 25th minute before James Garner sealed the three points in the 61st minute. Both teams had contrasting results in the lead-up to the game with Coventry going three games without a win.

Managers Reaction 

Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper: “It was a really important win, that is the headline for me. It was a challenging game, tactically. The way they set up does really test you positionally. I know Coventry is a rival, but I have a lot of respect for the way they play and the way they have stuck to that, over the years. They test you. We had to be positionally right and, in general, we were. But we turned the ball over too much in the first half, we did not make enough passes, and took too many touches, so we never got fluidity. When we did, the goals were excellent.”

Coventry’s Mark Robins: “I don’t think we were unlucky, it was that we did not take our chances when we needed to. When you are playing against a top team, they keep going. Forest have beaten Arsenal, and Leicester and was unlucky against Liverpool (in the FA Cup). I have not seen too many teams do what we have done to them. We are a really good side, but you look at it and think ‘he has taken off Keinan Davis and Brennan Johnson – a £20m forward – and brought Sam Surridge and Lewis Grabban on. Then Joe Lolley comes on, who I had at Huddersfield so I know his quality. We have really good quality, but what we do not have is the quality to be ruthless all of the time.”
