Numbers game: Nottingham Forest (A)

We break down the statistics from City's Sky Bet Championship 2-1 away win over Nottingham Forest.

First-half goals from Andreas Weimann and Nahki Wells put City in front, though a spirited fightback from Forest began through Luke Freeman’s long-range strike.

As the rain poured, so did the hosts’ pressure as they looked to put Dean Holden’s side on the backfoot in the second half, but an inspired display from Dan Bentley thwarted the likes of Lyle Taylor and Jack Colback.

Ultimately, a struggling Forest side would pay for their sluggish start as City showed grit and character to see out their fourth league win a row.
