Nott'm Forest   2 - 0   Ipswich

Nott'm Forest v Ipswich

Nott'm Forest 2-0 Ipswich

Lewis McGugan's superb long-range free-kick helped Nottingham Forest secure a fine home victory over Ipswich.

Forest made a strong start and went ahead after Chris Cohen crossed for David McGoldrick to side-foot home.

Jack Colback came close to equalising when Luke Chambers cleared his shot off the line before McGugan found the top corner with a wonderful 35-yard drive.

Forest's Nathan Tyson had a penalty shout rejected and Ipswich pressed late on but the hosts held firm.

It was a second successive victory for Forest and means they have risen to 10th in the Championship table.

For Ipswich it was a third straight defeat and they have now won only one of their last six matches.

606: DEBATE
setyourselfonfire

Earlier in the week Forest's assistant manager David Kelly said McGugan was playing with "magic in his boots", having seen the 21-year-old score a superb free-kick against Middlesbrough and a fine solo effort at Barnsley.

And McGugan justified the glowing praise with his strike on the stroke of half-time to help secure all three points.

McGoldrick's inclusion resulted in a change in formation up front, with the former Southampton striker playing on his own ahead of an attacking midfield.

Boss Billy Davies' tactical switch paid dividends as early as the 12th minute, with Forest taking the lead after a strong start.

Majewski sent a sublime pass down the line to Cohen, who continued before sending an inch-perfect cross for McGoldrick to tap in.

After taking the lead, Forest continued to find a lot of space in the Ipswich half but were almost undone midway through the half.

Colback evaded the attention of Forest's defence but saw his shot cleared off the line by Chambers, before the same man blocked another goalward drive moments later.

The home side survived and continued to edge the opening period, although McGugan's wayward 25-yard effort in the 31st minute never threatened the Ipswich goal.

But on the stroke of half-time McGugan found his range in extraordinary fashion, unleashing a 35-yard set-piece that flew past Ipswich keeper Marton Fulop.

McGugan continued in a similar vein of form after the break and came agonisingly close to helping Forest to a third goal, with his cross evading Fulop but also Paul Anderson at the far post.

Tyson had a seemingly stonewall penalty appeal waved away and as the clock wound down Ipswich began to attack with more vigour, Connor Wickham looking particularly dangerous.

But the visitors could not break through as Forest kept a second straight clean sheet.
