Nottm Forest   3 - 0   Plymouth

Nottm Forest 3-0 Plymouth

Nottingham Forest 3-0 Plymouth

Nottingham Forest cruised to a comfortable win over relegated Plymouth to ensure home advantage in their play-off semi-final second leg.

Robert Earnshaw saw a chipped effort clawed away by David Stockdale before sliding home Radoslaw Majewski's pass.

Lee Camp then saved well from Alan Judge before Guy Moussi's cross deflected in off defender Bondz N'Gala.

After Kari Arnason headed over, Lewis McGugan and Paul Anderson combined to wrap up the win for the hosts.


Nottingham Forest assistant manager David Kelly on boss Billy Davies being linked to Celtic:
"The speculation is not of his making and he can do nothing about it.

"He is an extremely good manager so why should he not be coveted by other clubs.

"But that will not affect where he wants to get this club at the end of the season.

"The gaffer is concentrating solely on the job in hand and we have put ourselves in a really good position."

Plymouth manager Paul Mariner:
"I was disappointed in the first half because you know that coming to a place like this against a good side, you have to compete.

"We were much better after half-time and to be honest I thought the 3-0 scoreline was a little bit tough on us.

"We have got work to do and going down means we will have to cut our cloth accordingly but I don't think it will need too much to get this team being successful again."
