Nottingham Forest 2015-2016 Season Gets Underway #FM16

Nottingham-Forest-icon

We have had a good start in the Championship after a 4-1 defeat at Brighton we have won our other 4 games in August.

Brighton & Hove Albion Away Lost 1-4  A shocking start to our season we played a 4-1-4-1 formation but failed to get in to the game Jamie Ward scored our only goal in a game that we looked like shipping a goal every time Brighton got in to our final 3rd. A game to forget for us and back to the training ground.

 

Rotherham Utd Home Won 2-0 A nervous first half with a number of chances missed but a much better 2nd period with goals from Tyler Walker and Nelson Oliveira giving us our first points of the season.

Charlton Athletic Home Won 2-0 A good solid performance and a formation change, we went with a 4-1-2-1-2 and controlled the game from the off,  2 late goals from Nelson Oliveira and Henri Lansbury gave us back to back wins and a much happier manager.

Bolton Wanderers Away Won 2-1 Our first away points and another good performance with Jamie Ward netting a brace before we gave away a late goal which inspired a last minute Bolton barrage and a game winning save from Dorus De Vries.

Cardiff City Home Won 3-0 Our best performance so far this season with new signing (free 1 year deal) Giorgos Samaras with a debut goal and assist staring in an Inside Forward role along with Nelson Oliveira and Jamie Ward also finding the goal.
