Nottingham Forest won for a fourth straight game as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Kenan Davis opened the scoring for the home side with his first goal since joining on loan from Aston Villa in the 15th minute. Ryan Yates doubled their lead in the 38th minute before Brennan Johnson sealed the three points in the 75th minute.
Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper: “I was pleased with the result and enjoyed the goals, but I did not love the overall performance, particularly in the second half. We’re a much better team than what we showed and the result and performance did not really match up, even though we could have scored five or six goals. There were good bits like Djed Spence’s assist and Keinan Davis getting his goal. Jack Colback was also excellent, but we’re trying to raise standards collectively and, when the players fell short, I will tell them.”
Barnsley assistant Ferran Sibila: “We had a lot of players missing and out of position but we still had a plan and, before they scored, we showed the belief was there. We were pressing well and had a good chance on the counterattack. I was really pleased with the performance up to the point when we had that unfortunate situation with Mads, who is a fantastic player who I admire for the way he trains and plays. But we gave that first goal to them and it changed the game.”
