Awoniyi's solitary strike seals second Premier League win for Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest bagged their second Premier League win of the campaign on Saturday courtesy Taiwo Awoniyi's fifty-fifth minute strike against his former employers, Liverpool.

This is a win The Reds and Awoniyi particularly will relish for a while as they went against all odds to shock the Merseysiders.

Forest initially struggled to conjure the required quality in attacking areas as Jürgen Klopp's side offered reminders that they posed a threat.

Super Eagles' Taiwo Awoniyi was causing problems for Liverpool's defence, and he did well to slide through Jesse Lingard whose strike was routinely dealt with by Alisson ten minutes after the restart.

The Nigerian international was substituted nine minutes after his match-winning goal had helped Steve Coopers boys claim their first win against Liverpool in twenty-six years.

Meanwhile, The Kop are now winless in five away matches for the first time since 2006/2007, having failed to score on their travels in the league for just the third time in 34 outings.
