Fulham Scores Three Goals In 6 Minutes To Beat Nottingham Forest

A fabulous surge of goals from Fulham shocked Nottingham Forest 3-2 at the City Ground on Friday night. Three goals from three different scorers in six minutes is massively impressive, especially considering none were scored by the Cottagers’ top scorer Aleksandar Mitrović.

After trailing early, Fulham leveled the match through Tosin Adarabioyo when the center back brilliantly headed home from a corner kick. Before Forest manager Steve Cooper could even think, João Palhinha put Fulham ahead with a stunning effort from just outside the penalty box that rocketed past Dean Henderson and into the top corner. 

Sensing blood in the water, the Cottagers pounced and doubled their lead as Harrison Reed scored his first goal for the club on a volley from just behind the penalty spot. The triple from the away side was enough to see out the challenge from Forest. 

Former Union Berlin striker Taiwo Awoniyi gave Forest an early lead from a corner, but the 1-0 lead for Cooper’s men only lasted as long as the first half. 

A second from Lewis O’Brien ensured a tense final 12 minutes on the banks of the River Trent. Despite several chances for both sides, the score remained and saw Fulham jump to sixth in the league, ahead of Liverpool and Chelsea. Marco Silva’s side will hope to keep this momentum going against Newcastle after the international break.

Forest’s struggles continued as the club currently sits in the relegation zone, just three points above its next opponent, Leicester City in last.
