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.
