Nottingham Forest got their first victory of the EPL season with a win over in-form Aston Villa, while playing at home at City Ground.

The first goal came in the fifth minute from defender Ola Aina of Nigeria, who strongly side-footed into the net from 25 yards away. Thanks to an Anthony Elanga's strong run down the flank and an assist from Harry Toffolo.

Had Villa won the this game away from home, they would have gone up to third on the EPL table but that was not to be. This is their second loss of the season after loosing to Liverpool earlier in the season.

Nottingham Forest increased their lead in the second half when Orel Mangala's strong 25-yard thunder-bolt humiliated Villa's Goalkeeper who was at the last World Cup. Emiliano Martinez also won Yashin Trophy Best Goalkeeper prize at the Ballon D'Or Awards on Monday 30th September, 2023.

The win moves Nottingham Forest from 16th to 12th in the EPL table.
