Bash9's Season Review - Part 2

Bash9's Season Review - Part 2

After seeing what happened in the first 12 games its time to see what happened in the next 11. Once again I'll give all the info on every game and my views from different stages. Alright then here we go.

Forest had only lost 1 of their first 12 league games and were now on a 7 game unbeaten run, but The Reds completely collapsed when they went into the away game at Yeovil, losing 3-1 with Chalobah scoring Forest's only goal of the game. That result wasn't a one off, as Forest's annual home defeat to Blackpool followed, even though Ince missed a penalty. Abdoun had been sent off after 35 minutes, but Forest couldn't hold out, losing to a late, but suspiciously offside Dobbie winner.

The Reds were now desperate for a win and it looked even less likely with the next game being away from home against the in form Leicester City. Forest opened the scoring with Simon Cox and they went on to score a second, by Mackie, with Nugent missing a second half peno - that really put Leicester down and Forest won the game 2-0.

Despite that morale booster Forest couldn't manage a repeat against Burnley, a 1-1 draw at home against them isn't a bad result, although Chris Cohen suffered a season ending injury in that game.

Next up, another poor result with a 3-2 home defeat against Reading - who had been 0-2 up early in the game. Even though Cox and Hendo pegged it back to 2-2 a defensive lapse saw Obika win it - with ex Red Chris Gunter getting sent off late on.

The indifferent form continued with a 2-2 away draw at Millwall, Reid and Chalobah the scorers this time. The bad run of results had left The Tricky Trees 7th and outside of the play-offs!

Finally a victory.... Sheffield Wednesday 0-1 Forest, this time the inform Simon Cox scoring the goal giving The Reds their first win in 3. After that good victory Forest then produced 2 boring goaless performances, drawing against Ipswich, home, and Birmingham, away.

QPR at home was the next game and with Forest's inconsistency you just didn't know what was going to happen (maybe we'd have a bit of boxing day magic) - and boxing day magic it was with The Reds beating the Premier league relegated QPR 2-0 with the new striker, Greg Halford and Andy Reid scoring.

In the last game of the first half of the season and our last game in 2013 we beat Leeds at home 2-1 with Halford scoring the first and Derbyshire scoring a screamer only seconds after the Leeds equaliser to win us the game.

At the half way mark, Forest were 5th on 39 points and on a 6 game unbeaten run going into the New Year. In my opinion, The Reds were great in the first half of the season and with the mini unbeaten run, I thought that it would only get better going into the 3rd quater of the season.

Thanks for reading, Bash9.
