FULL-TIME: Nottingham Forest 2, Burnley 0

BURNLEY slipped to a second defeat in five games after conceding twice in the second half.

Dexter Blackstock gave Nottingham Forest the lead after a goalless first half, despite appearing to foul Jason Shackell in the process of climbing to head in the opener just before the hour.

The Clarets almost conjured an immediate equaliser but Charlie Austin's shot from inside the box was well parried by goalkeeper Lee Camp, and Dean Marney's follow-up was blocked.

Sam Vokes replaced Brian Stock, and after scoring twice from the bench in the previous five games – including the equaliser in last week's derby draw with Blackburn Rovers – the Welsh striker almost repeated with feat soon after his 65th minute introduction.

Austin put an excellent ball into the box, but Vokes glanced narrowly wide.

Forest were looking for a response after losing their last two games, and Billy Sharp put the result virtually beyond doubt after beating the offside trap and slotting across Lee Grant into the bottom right corner.

Junior Stanislas, a 73rd minute substitute for Martin Paterson, who had been denied by the post in the first half, fired a free kick for a foul on Chris McCann on target, but Camp scooped it up.

Dear me, talk about transference, the poor Rover thet still don't get it do they? We lost we move on! We don't whine and whinge and proclaim how unfair it is. After Fridays debacle, on TV as well, you would have thought they would have exercised a little humility but no, like the pompous pub drunk they just can't help themselves!

I do hope that you and Midas realise that this is a report about Bumley. What on earth are you posting on here for? Should you not be checking on posts on a Rovers report.
The only reason you inbred Dingles aren't bleating is because you're usually too busy on the Rovers posts to notice your own.

I'm Not bothered about how anybody else went on except Burnley,the goals for have seemingly dried up,as Austin seems to be getting very little support.Surely Vokes deserves a chance with him up front,and had he had one against Rovers then our superiority would probably,have meant a victory.It was necessary to shore up our leaky defence,but two up front espescially at home.We have enough strikers for this to be happening including Paterson and Ings who are not wide men.Wallace and Stanislaus are. Getting the balance right is difficult but at home surely we should be attack minded.
