Nott'm Forest 2-1 Sheff Wed

Nottingham Forest came from behind to beat Sheffield Wednesday and record their fourth Championship win in a row.

The Owls had the better of proceedings and Marcus Tudgay flashed a shot over before the lively Jermaine Johnson prodded in a Richard Wood knock-down.

Forest levelled when Nathan Tyson drilled in after Garath McCleary's pass before Francis Jeffers was sent off for Wednesday for a lunge on Joe Heath.

Tudgay nodded wide before Luke Chambers won it by heading in a late free-kick.

Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies:

"In the first half the players showed how young they are because they didn't play at a high enough tempo.

"But the one thing you cannot fault is their courage to come from a goal down, their work ethic, team spirit and their desire to come back and win a game.

"We only had 17 fit players, so it's unbelievable we got the three points."

Sheffield Wednesday boss Brian Laws:

"You have to take risks, they looked nervous at the back and although you leave yourselves open, we had to take risks.

"I'm disappointed, defeat was harsh - we controlled the first half and they only had one shot on target.

"As for Franny - he hasn't got a bad bone in his body, but we won't appeal."
