Nottm Forest   1 - 0   Sheff Utd

Nottingham Forest 1-0 Sheffield Utd

Nottingham Forest 1-0 Sheffield Utd

Robert Earnshaw's 150th league goal secured the victory for Nottingham Forest against 10-man Sheffield United.

Earnshaw's milestone goal came early on at the City Ground after a corner that was flicked on by Paul Anderson, with the Welshman prodding home the ball.

Forty seconds into the second half Darius Henderson saw red for appearing to elbow Kevin Wilson off the ball.

But Forest were unable to extend their lead with Earnshaw, Anderson and Dexter Blackstock wasting good opportunities.


Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies:
"Three defeats in 26 games I think. It is a fantastic record, but there'll be twists and turns.

"We don't get carried away when we win or lose but I'm concerned about tired legs and have been for many weeks.

"We were tired at Coventry, we were tired at Derby, we were tired at Doncaster and it is a big concern."

Sheffield United manager Kevin Blackwell on the sending off:
"I spoke to Darius and he feels hard done by for sure, but without seeing it I can't comment.

"As a manager we're not allowed to speak our minds, because you get done for berating officials. I want to talk about the officials, but I can't.

"From our early setback of conceding, I thought the lads responded well."
