Nottingham Forest entered the top six as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the midweek action in the Championship. James Garner opened the scoring in the 22nd minute for Nottingham Forest. Darragh Lenihan was sent off early in the second half with Brennan Johnson sealing the three points from the penalty in the last minute.
Blackburn’s Tony Mowbray: “We missed some amazing chances to score in the game. We have to accept it’s not quite going our way at the moment, some of the situations where we had really good chances. Any team that does well has to suffer and we’re suffering a little bit at the moment. I think there’s lots of evidence that we’re doing alright, we missed an amazing chance tonight to get in front, we created enough chances to score multiple goals but I’ve got no concern.”
Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper: “I thought we more than deserved the win today. The second half especially after the 10 men, really we should have run away with it, we could have and should have scored four or five. But we did not quite show the composure or the decision-making that we showed for the first goal but we kept getting in. There were so many fouls on us. It was a feisty game and I think we did really well to compose ourselves, we could have lost our heads a little bit the way we were treated.”
