Nott'm Forest   2 - 1   Coventry

Nott'm Forest v Coventry graphic

Nottingham Forest 2-1 Coventry

Nottingham Forest came from a goal down to keep their unbeaten home record alive with victory over Coventry.

The Sky Blues went ahead when Sammy Clingan's free-kick was headed into his own net by Forest's Luke Chambers.

Forest levelled before the break thanks to a stunning 25-yard drive into the far corner from Radoslaw Majewski.

Richard Keogh's header somehow stayed out for Coventry before Forest won it when Chris Cohen's inswinging free-kick from the right sailed into the corner.

The victory means Forest have still not lost at home in a league game since September 2009 - a run of 26 matches.

They started impressively as the in-form Lewis McGugan's cross from the left only narrowly failed to pick out Robert Earnshaw, with Coventry keeper Keiren Westwood averting the danger.

Nathan Tyson also shot wide as Forest continued to dominate, but the visitors took the lead against the run of play when Chambers headed in under pressure from Aron Gunnarsson.

Majewski's bolt from the blue quickly restored parity and Cohen's slice of luck put the home side in the ascendancy, but their former striker Marlon King will be disappointed not to have got on the scoresheet.

Making only his second start for Coventry, King flashed a header wide, slammed a shot into the side-netting and then saw a final effort saved by Forest keeper Lee Camp as the hosts held on to move into the top 10 in the Championship.
