Nottm Forest 6-0 Wimbledon

Two goals from in-form striker Marlon Harewood helped Nottingham Forest to thrash bottom-of-the-table Wimbledon at the City Ground.

Wimbledon - now eight points adrift at the foot of the table - could not cope with Harewood's pace as he helped Forest emphatically end the slump that had seen them take just two points from the last five games.

And further goals from Andrew Reid, Gareth Taylor, Michael Dawson and Wes Morgan put the gloss on an impressive performance.

Forest almost got off to the perfect start as Taylor went within inches of heading them in the lead inside the opening 30 seconds.

But it took until the 24th minute for the first goal when Harewood's speed took him clear before being brought down by Dons keeper Paul Heald to earn a penalty.

Harewood made no mistake from the spot, and then on 37 minutes he crashed home Reid's perfect cross for his second of the game.

Just before half time Harewood returned the favour as he sent in a low cross which Reid lashed home for his sixth goal of the season.

In the second half, Taylor converted the fourth with a well-placed strike from the edge of the area after 63 minutes.

Two minutes later Heald was again picking the ball out of his net when Dawson scored after Wimbledon failed to deal with Reid's inswinging corner.

And Wimbledon's humiliation was completed when Morgan nodded home Eoin Jess' cross for the sixth.
