Nottingham Forest: Albert Adomah flies under the radar as Reds rescue draw

Nottingham Forest rescued a draw from the jaws of defeat as Albert Adomah popped up to score his first goal for the club.

Sabri Lamouchi’s side went 1-0 down early in the first-half after Lyle Taylor beat on-loan Manchester City goalkeeper Aro Muric with a header into the bottom corner.

Muric made a string of saves to ensure that Forest could contain Charlton Athletic’s free-flowing attacks, in a fine display from the Swiss. The two saves made by Muric came in the first four minutes of the game, and were both shots from within the six-yard box. Muric also proved strong at crosses, as he claimed the ball four times.

Michael Dawson also put in a monstrous display, showing all of his experience at the back. The Englishman made the most interceptions, the joint-most clearances and the joint-most blocks.

However, it seems that match-winner Albert Adomah’s 26-minute cameo display escaped everyone’s attention. The winger was a key player for the Nottinghamshire side as he scored with his only shot at goal.

There also seemed to be some street-wise defending from the attacker, as he made the second-most fouls, halting Charlton’s attacks.

Nottinghamshire Live gave the former Ghana international a six out of 10, highlighting his lively display.

He said: “Crashed in the unlikely equaliser from the corner to give Forest hope. Essentially that goal turned the game on its head, was lively for the time he was on.” (Source: Nottinghamshire Live)

Adomah has the experience of helping Aston Villa gain promotion last season, and it could prove invaluable to Lamouchi this campaign if this performance is anything to go off.
