Nottingham Forest extended their unbeaten run to nine matches as they produced one of the comeback football results of the midweek action in the Championship. This is their best run of unbeaten matches since 2016 and moved Forest within a point of the playoff places. Keane Lewis-Potter gave the visitors the lead in the 43rd minute but the home side equalized in the 55th minute from the penalty spot through Lewis Grabban, Brennan Johnson scored the match-winner in the 72nd minute with a neat finish.
Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper: “Coming back from 1-0 down at half-time when you’ve played so well is difficult and it would have been even harder if the fans weren’t here. I think it could have been a different story if we didn’t have 25,000 of them driving us on. So many people I talk to say it’s an event coming to Forest because of the status of the club and how big it is. Everybody’s health must come first with Covid, but I hope our fans can keep coming to games because they’re so important for us and I also know how important going to football is for everybody.”
Hull’s Grant McCann: “We were so comfortable and had scored a good goal to go 1-0 up, but the momentum of the game swung on an absolute howler by John Busby. George Honeyman has actually got a gash on his shin because he has taken the ball and their player has kicked him.”
