Nottingham Forest 6 (Majewski 21’, 37’, 43’, Ward 24’, Lansbury 55’, Henderson 90’) Huddersfield Town 1 (Vaughan 10')

Nottingham Forest romped to a 6-1 win over Huddersfield Town in the 2012-13 season thanks to a first-half hat-trick by Radoslaw Majewski. The visitors went in front after James Vaughan volleyed home on ten minutes, but we hit back as Majewski tapped home from close range. Centre back Elliot Ward’s glancing header but us in front minutes later and Majewski added his second with a low drive following a neat passing move on 37 minutes. The Polish midfielder completed his hat-trick on the stroke of half time with a thunderous effort which crashed in off the crossbar. The scoring wasn’t finished there as Henri Lansbury made it five ten minutes after half time with his first goal for the club, and Darius Henderson completed the rout with a thumping header at the back post in injury time.
