QPR 0-3 Nottm Forest

Andy Reid inspired Nottingham Forest as they reached the FA Cup fourth round.

Tottenham target Reid put Forest in front after 24 minutes with a curling 20-yard free-kick after he had been fouled by Danny Shittu.

And a minute later Reid set up Kris Commons for a fine finish, his first since a 300,000 move from Stoke.

Reid then tapped a free-kick to debutant Yoann Folly, on loan from Southampton, to fire home from 25 yards with eight minutes left.

  • QPR boss Ian Holloway:
    "I think we lacked quality in the final third. Even with all the injuries and suspensions we had, I still expected thoseout there to show more quality and purpose.

    "It looks like the players are worried and lacking confidence. We have to turn the tide and that is not easy.

    "When the third goal went in I have never seen so many supporters leave the ground and I felt like walking out with them."

  • Nottingham Forest caretaker boss Mick Harford:
    "Andy is a top class player.

    "We gave him a free role and Gareth Taylor was able to hold the ball up well and bring him into the game.

    "Obviously you want to keep your best players but it is down to the chairman and I don't know what the situation is - I get asked that every day."
