Nottm Forest   4 - 1   Doncaster

Nottingham Forest 4-1 Doncaster

Nottingham Forest 4-1 Doncaster

A spirited three-goal second-half display earned Nottingham Forest a comfortable victory over Doncaster.

A Gareth Roberts own goal gave the home-side a 1-0 half-time lead when Paul Anderson's shot deflected in.

Wes Morgan doubled the lead with a header and Robert Earnshaw's strike from the edge of the box made it 3-0.

Lewis McGugan's fine solo effort secured the three points before Billy Sharp grabbed an 82nd-minute consolation from Martin Wood's corner.


Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"I was concerned before the game, we've not beat them in six. It looked like a potential bogey team to us.

"In the second half, I thought our work rate, attitude and fitness was fantastic.

"We certainly can't get carried away, I would advise everybody to keep their feet on the ground and keep working very hard."

Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll:

"We felt we were the better side in the first half and our possession was good.

"We could have done better in the final third but anytime we got any sort of possession they got everyone behind the ball and that made it difficult for us.

"We were confident at half-time and wanted to do things a bit differently but we were naive in the second half."
