Andi's assist spurs City to victory

Andreas Weimann played a pivotal role as City secured their fifth consecutive win in all competitions.

Despite the Austrian forward having a goal controversially ruled out for offside, he was the architect for Famara Diédhiou's eighth goal of the campaign.

He latched on to Kasey Palmer's perfectly timed through ball, before delivering the low cross for Diédhiou's winner at the City Ground.

Palmer and Weimann know each other from their time at Derby County and are reunited at City with Palmer having joined the club on loan from Chelsea last week.

Describing the goal, Weimann said: “I know he can play those passes, he loves turning and running at defenders. I made the run and luckily he passed it through, I saw Fam (Diédhiou) and he’s tapped it in.”

Weimann did have the ball in the net himself but saw his goal ruled out for offside in the first half, while Forest keeper Costel Pantilimon kept out further shots.

But despite being in search of his first goal since August, the striker remains hungry to find the target, regardless of how he does it.

He said: “A member of staff said I was onside so that’s unfortunate but it doesn’t matter in the end because we won the game and we’re really happy.

“Of course it is frustrating.  Last week I hit the bar, this week I was given offside so hopefully it [scoring again] is coming next week…even if it just hits me and trickles in, I’ll take that!”

But he added: “The feel-good factor around the place is really good at the minute  and we need to keep that going, keep that momentum and not switch off and keep performing like we are.”
