Match preview: Nottingham Forest vs Hull City

24 October 2019

Nottingham Forest look to extend their unbeaten run to four games on Sunday afternoon as they take on Hull City at Eastwood CFC and a win would also see the side end the month with a 100% winning record.

The Reds have picked up three consecutive wins across all competitions and come into the fixture looking to build on their last league win against Loughborough Foxes which came two weeks ago. Forest picked up all three points away from home as they pulled themselves closer to the league leaders. Precious Hamilton netted either side of half-time and Bex Rayner bagged a spectacular effort to round off a great team display from the side. 

Forest currently sit seven positions above Sunday’s opposition as The Tigeresses sit bottom of the league standings having only picked up three points this season. Their only win came in their last outing as they picked up an impressive 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion last Sunday. The Baggies were ranked 10 points higher than the Yorkshire side before kick-off but goals from Rachael Ackroyd either side of the break ensured the side chalked their first points of the campaign on the board and unsurprisingly the side will be looking to build on their momentum come Sunday. 

Precious Hamilton will be raring to go on Sunday afternoon as she’ll be aiming to get back amongst the goals after sitting out The Reds Nottinghamshire County Cup tie last Sunday. The forward sits at the top of the league’s scoring charts with 11 goals in seven appearances and has found the back of the net at least once in every one of the side’s league games. Bex Rayner will be another Red the opposition will be keeping a watchful eye on in the game as she has become a pivotal figure in Forest’s attack. Rayner has played every minute of the side’s league games this season and has become indispensable in the middle of the park and after bagging her wonder goal against the Foxes she’ll be looking to add to her season tally at the weekend.

Match Reports

Forest 1-2 Hull

23 October 2019

Nottingham Forest suffered back-to-back defeats for the first time this season after they fell to a 2-1 loss against Hull City at The City Ground.

Goals either side of the break from Josh Magennis and Jarrod Bowen saw the visitors go into a two-nil lead and although Matty Cash pulled one back for Forest, their six-game unbeaten home run came to an end.

Sabri Lamouchi made four changes from the 1-0 defeat against Wigan at the weekend as Lewis Grabban, Joao Carvalho, Tiago Silva and Chema Rodriguez replaced Tobias Figueiredo, John Bostock, Yuri Ribeiro and Rafa Mir in the starting line-up.  

It was a fairly even start to proceedings as both teams conjured-up half-chances. Firstly, Bowen latched onto Jon Toral’s pass before firing inches past Brice Samba’s posts. Then moments later, Carvalho found half-a-yard of space on the edge of the Hull box, but his curling effort flew just wide of target via a deflection.

As the half wore on, Hull began to dominate the contest. In the 30th minute, they created a superb opportunity to take the lead. Kamil Grosicki played in Bowen whose right-footed attempt was excellently saved by Samba in the Forest net.

However, just eight minutes later, the visitors opened the scoring. Callum Elder’s cut back found Toral who’s effort was steered home by Magennis from close range as Hull went into the half-time break with a one-goal lead.

The Tigers came out of the blocks flying at the start of the second period, and they doubled their advantage in the 48th minute. Toral broke clear and squared the ball across for Bowen to slot the ball into the bottom corner.

Forest responded well to going two-goals behind, and they halved the deficit within just seven minutes. Cash drove inside and ran in on goal before tucking the ball into the corner past ‘keeper George Long.

The Reds began to push for an equaliser and they had strong penalty appeals waved away after Ameobi went down inside the box, but the referee wasn’t interested.

Just two minutes later, Hull were down to 10 men. Goalscorer Magennis was given his marching orders after a late challenge on captain Ben Watson.

Forest continued to press for a leveller and they created a brilliant chance late on. Silva’s in swinging corner was met by Joe Worrall, but the defender could only steer his header wide of target.

Despite The Reds’ late pressure, Hull stood firm and held out for the victory, and therefore condemn Forest to a first home defeat since the opening day.
