Rubin Colwill came off the bench to score a brace and produce one of the surprising football results of the Championship on the weekend. The result means that the pressure piles on Forest Boss Chris Hughton. Lewis Grabban scored the opener for the hosts in the first half with a neat finish. Cardiff dominated the play after the goal and was rewarded with an equalizer in the 58th minute for his first senior goal.
The teenager then produced a moment of magic with a brilliant curling finish to put the visitors ahead after 73 minutes. Forest has endured a disastrous start to the season and is yet to notch their first win.
Nottingham Forest’s Chris Hughton: “I have to believe I can do that (turn things around). I have to. I have a group of players, I have a responsibility and we have to get results. However it happens, we have to find a way to win matches. That means players stepping up to the bar; that means players gelling together and all of us doing enough to get results.
Cardiff’s Mick McCarthy: “I am so pleased that he has signed a new contract because, if he hadn’t, people would be all over him like a rash, watching him get a cap with Wales and then do that today.. His second goal was in a different class. Kieffer (Moore) just played it around the corner to him and he produced a great finish. Management can sometimes look easy, can’t it? What pleased me most was that we took a short throw-in; we tried something different.
