Nottingham Forest moved out of the relegation zone and left Southampton on the brink with a thrilling 4-3 win at the City Ground.
Under pressure following Everton’s shock win, Taiwo Awoniyi scored twice in the first half and though Carlos Alcaraz pulled one back, Morgan Gibbs-White looked to have ended any hope of a comeback when his penalty restored Forest’s two-goal lead.
Instead, the drama continued into the second half when substitute Lyanco’s header pulled one back. But with Southampton pushing for an equaliser, Danilo converted after a delightful flick from Gibbs-White. James Ward-Prowse’s penalty was too little, too late.
The result moves Steve Cooper’s side above Everton, Leicester and Leeds into 16th position on 33 points, three points above the drop zone. Ruben Selles’ Southampton are now eight points from safety with only three games to play, their fate all but sealed. (Sky)
