Match Reports

Swansea 0-1 Forest

14 September 2019

Nottingham Forest produced a superb away performance to defeat league leaders Swansea City 1-0 and extend their unbeaten away record.

Alfa Semedo struck his first goal for the club with five minutes remaining as The Reds made it eight games without defeat in all competitions and ended Swansea’s unbeaten start to the season.

Sabri Lamouchi made five changes to this side and handed a league debut to Yuri Ribeiro at left back while Joao Carvalho made his first start of the season.

Swansea dominated possession in the opening periods of the match but the best chances fell to The Reds as Lewis Grabban was flagged marginally offside when forcing goalkeeper Freddie Woodman into a save, then the goalkeeper was forced to keep out Sammy Ameobi’s curling effort after a fine move on 16 minutes.

Forest grew into the half and were pressing their opponents, penning Swansea into their own half and Grabban did have the ball in the net following Carvalho’s threaded pass, only to see the offside flag raised as the confidence continued to grow in the Forest ranks.

Carvalho headed over the bar from Ribeiro’s cross and then Grabban latched onto Ben Watson’s looping header only to see his effort crash off the crossbar as The Reds searched for the opener.

Forest were looking threatening in behind with the hosts in control of possession without creating any clear-cut opportunities as the sides went in level at the break.

Swansea continued to pass the ball neatly with The Reds looking to pounce on any mistakes, as they did in the 55th minute as Grabban latched onto a poor back pass, setting up Carvalho for a shot which Woodman kept out at the near post.

Andre Ayew flashed a header wide of the target on the hour mark for Swansea with their best chance of the game before successive corners for Forest saw two chances, firstly for Joe Worrall who’s volley was parried away and then Samba Sow saw his goalbound effort well blocked by a defender.

The big moment came for The Reds on 85 minutes as they finally took one of their chances and took the lead at the Liberty. Grabban made an excellent break down the right-hand side, beat his man and drilled a low ball across the face of goal for the waiting Semedo who tapped home past Woodman.

Forest resolutely saw out the closing stages as Swansea were kept at arm’s length and the fantastic travelling Forest support were sent home happy.
