Full time: Blackburn Rovers 0, Nottingham Forest 1
Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies heaped praise on Darius Henderson after his 'wonderful' injury-time finish gave his side a 1-0 win at Blackburn.
Henderson opened his account for the season after Rovers goalkeeper Jake Kean spilled the ball under pressure from Jamie Mackie, who was alert to lay the ball for Henderson to emphatically lash home from 20 yards.
Rovers boss Gary Bowyer accepted his team did not play as well as in last week's draw against Derby but felt the players deserved credit for the spirit they displayed during the game.
"It wasn't a classic of a game but I thought we showed fighting qualities and we pushed Forest as close as we possibly could," Bowyer said.
"In my opinion, they're one of the favourites with the manager they've got and the money they've got, so we've got some positives to take.
"We haven't played as well as we can. With the ball in the first half, we looked nervous with some making their home debuts.
"We settled down a little bit more in the second half and I always thought it was going to be a set-play, a wonder strike or a mistake that wins that type of game and so it was."
