Under 23s: QPR 3-3 Forest

20 August 2018

Nottingham Forest Under 23s picked up their first point of the season with a thrilling 3-3 draw against QPR on Monday.

The Reds fought back from 2-0 down to go 3-2 up thanks to a Virgil Gomis brace and a strike from Yassine En-Neyah but Rangers hit back to level the scores and ensure that both sides left with a point.

QPR took the lead when Deshane Dalling scored on 22 minutes with a near-post finish, and on 37 it was two as Aramide Oteh tucked home a penalty.

But three goals in eight minutes for Forest in the second half saw them turn the game on its head. Gomis headed home from close range on 54 and five minutes later he showed great composure to finish off Brennan Johnson's through ball.

Just after the hour mark En-Neyah finished low into the corner to put Forest in front but a rasping long-range shot from Ilias Chair crashed in off the post on 71 minutes to make it 3-3 and end a fantastic match in West London.
