Nott'm Forest 0-1 Bristol City

Bristol City moved out of the Championship relegation zone with a win at fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest.

Chris Wood scored the only goal from the penalty spot 10 minutes in to the second half, after Forest goalkeeper Lee Camp hauled down Jon Stead.

Marcus Tudgay and Andy Reid went close late on for Forest, who lost at home for the 12th time this season.

The win lifted City a point above Coventry, who slip back into the bottom three, and within three of Forest.

In a game of few chances it was always likely a mistake could affect the result, and it was the Forest goalkeeper who made it.

Camp spilt a deep cross by Bristol City's Richard Foster and in an effort to win the ball back, flew through the legs of Jon Stead.

Wood, on loan from West Bromwich Albion, stepped up and, despite Camp getting a hand to his penalty, recorded his second goal of the season.

At the other end Dean Gerken kept Bristol City in front with a series of good saves late on.

Forest manager Steve Cotterill sent on substitute Marcus Tudgay late on, and he almost levelled things with a late header that Gerken pushed away, before Andy Reid curled a left foot effort from outside the box wide.

Gerken then dived to hold another header from Forest captain Luke Chambers in injury time and secure a first win at the City Ground since 1955.
