ASTON VILLA LOSE TO FOREST IN ENGLISH CHAMPIONSHIP

Former Premier League side Aston Villa lost their encounter against English Championship side Nottingham Forest 2-1 over the weekend, further denting their chances of regaining top flight status at the end of May.


Villa took the lead first but lost their edge, losing to the hosts with ten men on the pitch. Jonathan Kodjia curled a shot into the home team’s net in the 19th minute. However, the home team ensured they did not end the half without equalizing the scoreline.

Jamie Ward sent in a good effort that Villa shot stopper Sam Johnstone stopped but spilled allowing Britt Assombalonga tap in the equalizer three minutes from the end of the first half.

Villa manager Steve Bruce thought the game would end 1-1 as they held unto the scoreline after losing Jack Grealish in the 78th minute. He was obviously weakened by the late winner for Forest as 17-year-old Ben Brereton scored in injury time.
