Match Reports

Wycombe 0-3 Forest

6 February 2021

Nottingham Forest produced a clinical away performance to beat Wycombe Wanderers 3-0 at Adams Park this afternoon.

Glenn Murray scored two goals on his first start for the club in each half before Anthony Knockaert’s fine third added gloss to the scoreline which Forest were full value for.

Chris Hughton made two changes to the side that beat Coventry City on Tuesday night as Sammy Ameobi and Lewis Grabban missed out through injury and were replaced in the starting line-up by Luke Freeman and Murray while Alex Mighten returned to the substitutes' bench.

The hosts made a positive start to the game as towering forward Uche Ikpeazu had two efforts on goal, the first sailing comfortably over the bar and the second a little less comfortably drifting just wide of Brice Samba’s right-hand post.

On seven minutes, however, The Reds found themselves in front with their first effort of the game thanks to a magic moment from Murray. Gaetan Bong’s pass down the left got the Wycombe defence running towards their own goal, Murray latched onto the end of it and lofted a superb lobbed effort over the stranded Ryan Allsop and into the far corner of the net.

An early lead for Forest and they went in search of a crucial second, with James Garner volleying just wide of the target and Anthony Knockaert forcing a fine low save by Allsop as the Wycombe keeper got down low to keep out his deflected effort from the edge of the box.

The Chairboys came back into the game and were applying plenty of pressure on the Forest goal, without causing too much threat. Free kicks and crosses came into The Reds’ 18-yard box but the defence stood firm, with Joe Worrall and Tobias Figueiredo heading everything clear and Brice Samba claiming plenty of crosses.

Ikpeazu had the ball in the back of the net for the hosts on 34 but it was ruled out for offside as The Reds held on to the one-goal advantage at the break.

Wycombe looked to carry on where they left off at the start of the second half as Ikpeazu got on the end of a long throw into the box, forcing a good save from Samba, but on 55 The Reds found the vital second goal as Murray doubled his tally from the penalty spot.

The forward broke into the Wycombe area and was brought down by a combination of Jordan Obita and Josh Knight, but he dusted himself down to convert the spot kick past the despairing dive of Allsop.

Forest were looking comfortable with their two-goal cushion and were looking most likely to extend the advantage. Cyrus Christie unleashed a fierce shot which Allsop did well to tip over the bar then substitute Joe Lolley almost found the bottom corner with his first touch of the game with a dipping volley from the edge of the box on 71.

Two minutes later and the third goal arrived following a flowing move. Garner sprayed a lovely pass out wide to Lolley on the left, he beat his man and delivered low into the box where Knockaert arrived to lash an unstoppable effort past Allsop into the roof of the net.

The Reds were rampant as Knockaert curled another effort just wide and then Lyle Taylor came off the bench to hit a venomous effort just wide of the far post and another strike deflected just wide, but the scoreline remained at 3-0 as Forest produced another excellent away result.
