Cardiff City 2 Nottingham Forest 1 – Reds beaten and suffer injury woes

Jordan Hugill had a dream debut to remember as Cardiff won 2-1 to dent Nottingham Forest’s Sky Bet Championship play-off push.

Norwich striker Hugill spent the first half of the season on loan at West Brom and his arrival in the Welsh capital was announced only a few hours before kick-off.

And the loan signing set the Bluebirds on their way to an impressive victory inside six minutes, Isaak Davies doubling the lead before Keinan Davies grabbed a stoppage-time consolation for the Reds.

Forest were a pale shadow of the side that have relentlessly climbed the standings since Steve Cooper’s appointment on September 21.

Bottom of the table when he took over, victory would have catapulted Forest to fifth and into the play-off places for the first time this season.

Sadly, it was not to be.
