Walsall 1-0 Forest
Update: My full match report is now available to view on the Nottingham Forest website, along with another excellent report from Bridport Red.
This one was a major disappointment. For all the beautiful passing football in the first half, we missed the chances we created (Messrs Tyson and Commons being most guilty), gave a goal away as soon as the second half started, and then never looked likely to get one back. Unbelievably, I don't think either keeper had a save to make in the entire 90 minutes!
The team lined up like this:
Chambers Breckin (c) Wilson Lockwood
Davies Cohen Commons
CC was fuming after the game, and encouragingly, his sentiments seem to echo those of many of us long-suffering souls who were at the Bescot last night.
As for me, well I didn't have anyone to go with, and it cost me £19 I can ill-afford before Christmas, but I went anyway. To be honest, there is a large part of me that wishes I hadn't bothered...
