Nottingham Forest were beaten 1-0 by Fulham at the City Ground as Harry Arter scored in stoppage time at the end of the first half.

The Reds once again succumbed to a goal conceding in injury time and it represents a problematic situation for Sabri Lamouchi.


Forest’s hopes of gatecrashing the top two are now almost certainly evaporated and the team must now concentrate on cementing a top-six place.

Following yesterday’s performance, we analysed the players and gave them a mark out of 10.

Brice Samba – 6

Was a bystander for the majority of the contest and was powerless to prevent Arter’s winning goal.

Matty Cash – 7

Probably Forest’s best player on an otherwise disappointing night for Lamouchi’s men.

Tobias Figueiredo – 5

Not the best night for the Portuguese defender who was extremely wasteful in possession.

Joe Worrall – 5

Another off day for the Reds defender who seemed to struggle to shake off the disappointment of Saturday.

Yuri Ribeiro – 6

Another tidy performance from the youngster who does seem to be thriving in each game these days.

Ben Watson – 6

Broke play up well from the middle of the park but Arter and Josh Onomah dedicated the pace for the opposition.

Samba Sow – 6

Was withdrawn at half-time and doubts must not be raised over his fitness ahead of Saturday’s trip to Preston.

Joe Lolley – 6

Another who was withdrawn at the interval. He tried to get Forest going and the Reds missed his spark in the second half.

Tiago Silva – 5

Once again not a vintage performance from the Portuguese performer who has really struggled since the restart.

Sammy Ameobi – 6

A decent performance from the winger who was probably surprisingly withdrawn. Arguably fatigued and being saved for Saturday.

Lewis Grabban – 6

Fed on scraps throughout and Forest had a problem all afternoon with supplying him with the relevant service.


Ryan Yates (Sow, HT) – 6

Nuno Da Costa (Lolley, HT) – 6

Adama Diakhaby (Ameobi, 57′) – 5

Alfa Semedo (Silva, 64′) – 5

Alex Mighten (Watson, 85′) – N/A
