Nottingham Forest supporters haven’t had much to shout about during the last five years.

This season is the first in recent memory that the club has contested for a place in the top half of the Championship.

Relegation to League One has been avoided on two occasions, whilst the club has overseen the arrivals of several new managers.


Martin O’Neill is the man tasked with reviving fortunes these days and hopefully, he can return the Reds to where they belong.

Despite not experiencing success over a full season, Forest have picked up some solid results in the last five years.

Seat Pitch looked at the five best games since 2014 for the men in red.

Derby 1-2 Forest (January 2015, Video: NFFCTube)

Quite possibly the most memorable game in the club’s history to supporters of a certain age.

Forest went into the game at Pride Park in awful form under Stuart Pearce and trailed early on with Henri Lansbury putting through his own net.

Britt Assombalonga restored parity before Ben Osborn fired home a stoppage-time winner to send the Reds supporters into pandemonium.

Forest 4-2 Arsenal (January 2017, Video: NFFCTube)

An unfancied Forest side led by caretaker boss Gary Brazil dumped Premier League Arsenal out of the FA Cup in 2018.

Goals from Eric Lichaj (2), Ben Brereton and Kieran Dowell sent Arsene Wenger’s team packing in the competition.

It was perhaps more impressive that Arsenal arrived on Trentside as the holders, but Wenger’s decision to play a weakened team backfired massively.

Forest 1-0 Derby County (February 2019, Video: NFFCTube)

A Yohan Benalouane goal after just 74 seconds gave Forest their first win over Derby since 2015 back in February.

Forest were never in danger of losing to their fierce rivals following the early opener.

It ensured that the Reds collected four points from the Rams this season saw Forest reclaim the Brian Clough trophy.

Newcastle 2-3 Forest (August 2017, Video: NFFCTube)

Forest made the trip to St James’ Park in August 2017 with a newly assembled Mark Warburton team.

The Reds secured a stunning 3-2 win in extra-time thanks to Tyler Walker’s winner.

The EFL Cup contest was about as good as it got for striker Jason Cummings in a Forest shirt.

He netted the Reds’ first two goals on a memorable night at the Premier League outfit.

Forest 4-2 Leeds (January 2019, Video: NFFCTube)

Forest produced a stunning comeback victory to defeat Leeds United at the City Ground.

Jack Colback opened the scoring before Kalvin Phillips saw red for a challenge on Adlene Guedioura.

The Whites showed their class, however, taking the lead through Jack Clarke and Ezgjan Alioski.

The Reds rallied however and goals from Colback again, Daryl Murphy and Ben Osborn sent Leeds packing, in what proved to be Aitor Karanka’s final league game in charge of Forest.
