Nottingham Forrest might be without a manager but they pulled off one of the surprising football scores of the Championship weekend. Manager Chris Houghton was sacked a few days ago after lying at the bottom of the table. Steven Reid was named as the interim head coach and helped them to their first win of the season as well as their first clean sheet of the season.
Lewis Grabban scored for the visitors in the first half before an own goal by Lee Nicholas after the break put a stop to their losing streak. This was also the first time since April that they have managed to score more than a single goal. Huddersfield has now lost two of their last three games after a superb start to the season.
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “For me, they started the game better than we started. They started competing and winning challenges that we can’t lose to compete in the game. It is true we didn’t start well enough. We didn’t attack well enough and when you don’t attack well, you are going to suffer counter-attacks and that’s what happened.”
Nottingham Forest’s caretaker boss Steven Reid: “We enjoyed the moment but we can’t get away from the sad week it has been with losing Chris – a superb manager, the man who brought me to the club and a man I have so much respect for. Finding ourselves in a position in the league of where we are it was important that we got something out of the game, we were fully confident.”
