19 October 2019

Check out the match preview as Nottingham Forest return to Sky Bet Championship action when they travel to Wigan Athletic on Sunday, in association with Football Index.

Football is back as The Reds look to continue their fine form when they visit the DW Stadium for tomorrow's televised clash.

Forest are on a 10-game unbeaten run in the league, a string of games which saw them climb to second in the division prior to the international break.

Wigan have had a mixed campaign so far but will be up for the fight come 2pm on Sunday.

Match Reports

Wigan 1-0 Forest

20 October 2019

Nottingham Forest’s unbeaten run ended this afternoon as they fell to a 1-0 defeat against Wigan Athletic.

A goal just after the half-hour mark from Jamal Lowe proved to be the difference as Forest huffed and puffed but lacked the quality with the final finish to come away from the game with anything.

Sabri Lamouchi made five changes from the 1-0 win over Brentford prior to the international break as Tobias Figueiredo, John Bostock, Sammy Ameobi, Jack Robinson and Rafa Mir brought in to replace Chema Rodriguez, Samba Sow, Tiago Silva, Joao Carvalho and Lewis Grabban.

There was a fairly even start to the game with both sides creating half-chances. Firstly, Brice Samba got down well to save from Jamal Lowe before Yuri Ribeiro bravely won a header inside the Wigan box but saw his effort drift wide.

Sammy Ameobi then had strong appeals for a penalty waved away on 26 minutes before Rafa Mir glanced a header over the bar following Joe Lolley’s teasing cross.

On 35 minutes the home side took the lead following a swift break forward. Lowe and Gavin Massey linked up well down the right, with the latter’s cross being turned home from close range by Lowe.

It was almost two for Wigan on 41 as Charlie Mulgrew curled a free kick against the foot of the post with Samba beaten as an out-of-sorts Forest went in at the break one behind.

Samba was called into action just after the restart, clawing away Massey’s attempted chip, before Forest created three good chances of their own.

John Bostock played a disguised through ball for Rafa Mir on the right-hand side of the penalty area, but the Spanish forward fluffed his lines as he skewed his effort wide of the mark.

Bostock and Mir were then replaced by Tiago Silva and Lewis Grabban, and the pair immediately linked up as Grabban latched onto the Portuguese midfielder’s pass only to flick a shot wide.

The Reds’ best chance came on the hour-mark as a looped cross into the box found Lewis Grabban unmarked from six yards out but he planted his header straight into the arms of Wigan keeper David Marshall.

Forest continued to press forward in search of the equaliser but didn’t have their shooting boots on as Sammy Ameobi and Ben Watson dragged tame efforts wide when well placed on the edge of the box.

Despite all their pressure, Forest were indebted to Brice Samba at the other end of the pitch on 85 minutes as he clawed away a dangerous low cross into the box before tipping Kal Naismith’s shot around the post at full stretch.

Ultimately, it was a poor afternoon for Forest who never got into their stride with the first-half goal proving decisive.
