Nottm Forest   3 - 2   Derby

Nottingham Forest survived a second-half fightback by Derby to emerge victorious in a five-goal thriller.

The Reds were 3-0 up at the break, Radoslaw Majewski crashing an unstoppable shot in off the underside of the bar for the first.

An own goal by Rob Hulse extended the home side's lead and Nathan Tyson extended it when he rounded the keeper.

Two deflected goals, from a Wes Morgan clearance and Jake Livermore shot, set up a tense finale but Forest held on.

But there was controversy at the end of the match when Tyson picked up a corner flag bearing the Forest emblem and waved it in celebration in front of the 4,376 travelling Derby fans in the Bridgford End - an incident which the Football Association will investigate.

It was a first league victory for Forest this season but Billy Davies' side were made to work hard by east midlands rivals Derby at the City Ground.

Poland international Majewski, who scored the first goal of his loan spell from Groclin in the midweek Carling Cup win against Middlesbrough, put Derby on the back-foot within 58 seconds with a rocket shot.

Gary Teale spurned a good chance to bring Derby level midway through the first-half, dragging his shot wide after Rob Hulse's pass found him with time and space on the edge of the area.

It proved to be a costly miss as Forest doubled their lead after 28 minutes when their former player Kris Commons brought down Joe Garner on the right touchline and the ball ended in the Derby net from Chris Cohen's in-swinging free-kick.

Dexter Blackstock wheeled away in celebration but the final touch was off Hulse's head. The striker thought he had made amends eight minutes later but his close-range header was ruled out by referee Martin Atkinson.

Forest went in three to the good at the break after Blackstock had put Tyson in the clear to round Stephen Bywater and slot home into an empty net.

A Derby comeback looked on in the second period, however, when Paul Connolly's long punt forward was flicked on by Jake Buxton and Addison's overhead kick struck Wes Morgan and wrong-footed Lee Camp as it flew into the net in the 51st minute.

Nine minutes later Livermore's left-foot shot from the edge of the box found its way into the bottom corner after deflecting off Luke Chambers.

Derby's tails were up but Forest held on for their first home points of the season, although they will be concerned about the scenes at the end of the match.

After Tyson's celebrations, Rams players Dean Leacock and Gary Teale confronted the striker for inciting the Derby fans behind the goal.

That caused the majority of the rest of both squads to rush over and get involved as stewards fought to keep supporters off the pitch.

A Football Association spokesman has said the organisation will be investigating the incidents "as a matter of urgency".


Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies on the late fracas:
"I didn't see what happened but it doesn't take the edge off the win at all.

"We have beaten Derby for the first time in over six years and the fans should enjoy it because it was a wonderful performance and result.

"I thought we were magnificent in the first half and we absolutely pummelled them.

"I didn't see the incident but if that's what Nathan has done then I will look at the video.

"I remember the last time Derby were here and Robbie Savage was waving a Derby scarf around.

"There was very little made of that and we hope it will be the same for this.

"We never complained about it or made a fuss because we understood that Derby should enjoy the victory they had here."

Derby manager Nigel Clough:
"I thought we were a little unfortunate to come in 3-0 at half-time having created two one-on-one chances ourselves and had a goal disallowed.

"It wasn't as if our goal was getting peppered and our keeper was pulling saves off left, right and centre.

"We restored a little bit of pride in the second half with an exceptionally good performance and there are positives we can take from the game."

"We had a go in the second half and if you are going to go down then you go down fighting and that's what we did."
