Nottingham Forest Fans React to Victory at Blackburn Rovers

‘Three-Month Raincloud Lifted’

The victory, Forest‘s first of the season, came thanks to Joe Lolley‘s 90th-minute deflected strike.

The winger, who had impressed throughout the match, cleverly beat his marker on 89 minutes and watched as his left-footed effort deflected off a defender and beyond the wrong-footed Thomas Kaminski.

There was little to separate the two sides for 89 minutes of the fixture at Ewood Park, before Lolley scored to settle the tie.

A bright start to the game led to Luke Freeman and Lewis Grabban linking up early on. The former fizzed a low cross to Grabban, but the forward was unable to convert from close range.

Further chances fell to Sammy Ameobi and Lyle Taylor – both of which struck the post from opposing corners of the penalty area.

Ameobi came close again with a stabbed effort towards goal which hit the upright. But it was Lolley’s deflected error less than a minute from the end that wrapped up the game.

The result provides Forest with their first set of points of the season – ending a run of four back-to-back defeats in the Championship – and Forest fans are understandably pleased to end such a run.
