Six of the best: v Nottingham Forest

We take a look back at some standout victories over Nottingham Forest from recent years.

Nottingham Forest 1-2 Bristol City

Saturday, October 3rd 2020
Sky Bet Championship
Goals: Andreas Weimann, Nahki Wells

Bristol City headed into the first international break of the season with their 100% Championship record intact, after a 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

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.

Nottingham Forest 0-1 Bristol City

Sunday, January 19th 2019
Sky Bet Championship
Goal: Famara Diédhiou

Famara Diédhiou swept home his eighth goal of the season to secure City their fifth consecutive win in a 1-0 victory away to Nottingham Forest.

The striker tapped home from Andreas Weimann’s second-half cutback at the City Ground, as City made it 11 unbeaten in all competitions.

City had been bright but survived spells of pressure, with Frank Fielding denying Lewis Grabban, Yohan Benalouane and Jack Colback, to earn his clean sheet in his first appearance of the season.

Weimann had a glorious chance to make it 2-0 late on but for the in-form Costel Pantilimon, however the full-time whistle would ensure City retain seventh spot in the Sky Bet Championship and a rare win on Forest turf; their third victory here in their last 28 attempts.

 

Bristol City 2-1 Nottingham Forest

Saturday, December 16th 2017
Sky Bet Championship
Goals: Joe Bryan, Marlon Pack

Marlon Pack's first goal of the campaign helped City on their way to a fourth-straight victory in the Sky Bet Championship, with a 2-1 home win against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder's 25-yard strike put City ahead before Joe Bryan, playing on the left-wing, smashed in the Robins' second goal of the day soon after.

Forest's Kieran Dowell halved the deficit with a stunning long-range strike of his own soon after the restart.

However, the visitors never really threatened a grandstand finish, leaving Lee Johnson's side to walk away with 12 points from a possible 12 in their last four outings.

Bristol City 2-1 Nottingham Forest

Sunday, October 16th 2016
Sky Bet Championship
Goals: Tammy Abraham, Jamie Paterson

Jamie Paterson scored his first Bristol City goal against his former club to help his new employers chalk up a fourth straight victory in all competitions.

Trailing to Apostolos Vellios’ first-half strike, a double change at the interval helped turn the tide in favour of the hosts.

Tammy Abraham capitalised on an underhit backpass to equalise with his 11th goal of the season before Paterson struck the winner just three minutes later.

 

Bristol City 2-0 Nottingham Forest

Friday, October 16th 2015
Championship
Goals: Aaron Wilbraham (2)

Two early goals from Aaron Wilbraham fired Bristol City to their first home win of the season at the expense of Nottingham Forest in Steve Cotterill’s 100th game in charge.

The television cameras have proved a lucky omen for the manager, who remains unbeaten in seven matches on Sky Sports including this latest success over his former club.

City skipper Wilbraham scored with a deflected shot and a trademark header inside the opening 11 minutes from two crosses as City flew out of the traps.

Only a late double save from Forest keeper Dorus De Vries prevented a Wilbraham hat-trick in a game City were well deserving of maximum points.

 

Nottingham Forest 0-1 Bristol City

Saturday, April 7th 2012
Championship
Goal: Chris Wood

Chris Wood scored from the spot to lift City out of the relegation zone with this win at the City Ground.

Lee Camp brought down Jon Stead to gift the Robins the penalty, and Forest were unable to find a way back despite late chances from Marcus Tudgay and Andy Reid.

This Saturday's fixture versus Forest will be the 96th meeting and streamed live on Robins TV.

The build-up show starts at 2.30pm followed by the main event at 3pm with live commentary, analysis and replays.
