Forest V Doncaster: Match Report From Kid's Corner

Match report from Kid's Corner, Forest v Doncaster, Saturday 15th March.

The Reds were up against a relegation threatened Doncaster with a terrible away run of losing 10 out of their last 13 games. Reid makes his first start since his hernia operation which is a boost to the Forest team and adds a bit of class back into the squad! Former Forest loanee's Billy Sharp and James Coppinger both started for Donny. Alright then here we go.


Forest kicked off the match creating early chances and keeping possession. Forest's first chance fell to the man who they would want it to, Paterson, but his shot was ballooned wide and over.

Doncaster just using route one football, launching the ball up to the giant Brown but Lascelles stood strong.

Forest kept on making chances and when Halford was played through he looked as if he was going to be the one to open the scoring but he scuffed his shot and it was easily saved. Then Forest were genuinely unlucky not to score Majewski's volley was saved and Cox's rebound was cleared off the line! Straight after that, Forest got the best chance so far, Reid whipped a lovely ball in and Lascelles leaped up and his free header was headed over, from only 6 yards out. Grrrrrr... this was starting to look like one of those days!

The rest of the half was dull with no more chances being made. Half time 0-0.

Forest fans were starting to get a bit agitated with the players and the only player standing out was Greening. Doncaster with only a mediocre performance so far.

Doncaster came out a different side after half time piling on the pressure and creating really good chances for Sharp and Brown but they couldn't find the back of the net. Forest were making silly mistakes with still only one player keeping his head - Greening, who was outstanding.

More chances were being made for Donny and one of the best was when their full back was slipped through but his shot was saved at the near post by Darlow.

As the last 15 minutes approached Forest had only made a few weak chances but none of them forced the Donny keeper into any difficult saves. Just after the 75 minute mark, Doncaster got their best chance of the game when they crossed a ball in from the right and Sharp headed inches wide.

Forest were being shown how to play football by Doncaster, who were looking the more likely to snatch a goal. However, Forest kept on trying and right in the last minute it looked as if Majewski had snatched a goal with a swerving longshot but the keeper palmed it over! Forest couldn't create any more chances and the game ended 0-0. Full time.

An awful performance by Forest, who are now without a win for 7 games. Too many mistakes, not enough urgency and also some bad tactics, in my opinion, from Billy.

However, I suppose it could have been a loss! Reid went straight down the tunnel as well, when he came off, so fans will hope that it isn't serious - ahead of Derby next week.

Thanks for reading, Bash9.
