Nottingham Forest slipped to their first defeat in 10 games as Wigan Athletic secured a 1-0 victory at the DW Stadium.
Jamal Lowe’s first-half goal was enough to ensure that Sabri Lamouchi’s team were beaten for the first time since the opening day of the campaign.
Forest now have back-to-back home games against Hull City and Reading to put things right.
Following today’s defeat, Seat Pitch looked at the players’ performance and rated them out of 10.
Brice Samba – 7
The Congolese stopper made several decent stops to prevent Wigan from extending their lead and was powerless to prevent the goal.
Matty Cash – 7
Drove forward well and was decent at the back. Proved one of Forest’s best outlets going forward.
Joe Worrall – 5
Not the best afternoon for the academy graduate who committed himself to leave Forest exposed for the goal.
Tobias Figueiredo – 5
Should have cut out the cross which led to Lowe’s opening goal and this wasn’t a vintage performance from the central defender.
Jack Robinson – 5
Was wasteful in possession throughout and wasn’t at his energetic best during the contest.
Ben Watson – 6
Neat and tidy as usual as he kept things simple in the middle of the park.
John Bostock – 5
Clearly showing signs of ring-rust and was replaced early into the second half.
Sammy Ameobi – 7
Lively and busy throughout, although his first touch was found wanting on several occasions.
Joe Lolley – 6
Not the stereotypical performance from the Forest winger. A frustrating afternoon at the office.
Yuri Ribeiro – 6
Should have won Forest a penalty when he was blatantly fouled in the second half. Tried hard to get Forest back into the game.
Rafa Mir – 4
The less said about this performance from Mir the better. Missed two chances in the first half and an absolute sitter in the second.
Lewis Grabban (Mir, 55′) – 6
Missed a good chance when introduced and fed largely off scraps in terms of service.
Tiago Silva (Bostock, 55′) – 7
One of Forest’s better players when he entered the action and tried his best to put Forest on the front foot.
Joao Carvalho (Robinson, 72′) – 6
Not really Carvalho’s day. Fluffed his lines with a cross late on and struggled to have an impact on the game.
