  4. Match reaction

    FT: Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    Villa goalscorer Conor Hourihane on his free-kick winner, speaking to Sky Sports: "I felt there was big gap. I thought if I get it around the wall there was a good chance of it going in.

    "We have got back-to-back wins now. Hopefully that will give momentum going forward."

    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    That's back-to-back wins for Aston Villa for the first time since April.

    They're up to 10th, two points off the play-offs.

    Villa Park was nervy at times but it's rocking now as the crowd sing along to Oasis.


    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    A big, trademark headed-clearance from John Terry and that is that.

    Aston Villa hold on.

  7. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    And now Villa have a throw-in, deep in Forest territory.

    Steve Bruce is waving frantically towards his players but his side should hold on now.

    30 seconds left.

  8. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    This is so poor I can't explain. Mustapha Carayol had just failed miserably with a long-range strike and this is even worse.

    He had three men in the box waiting for a cross but instead cuts in from the left wing and skies a shot into the top tier of the Holte End from 30 yards.

    Horrible decision making.

  9. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    Forest get the ball back but not where they want it. They're going to have to build an attack from their left-back position.

    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    Four minutes added on.

    Will Forest get one more chance?

    Conor Hourihane's free-kick is still the difference between the sides.

  11. Mills booked

    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    Excellent forward play from Scott Hogan.

    He holds the ball up well and wins a precious free-kick which will waste a few more seconds.

    Matt Mills goes in the book for the tackle.

  12. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    Forest are probing but Villa's defence holds strong. Glenn Whelan is back alongside his centre-backs and boots the ball clear.


    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    Robert Snodgrass off. Alan Hutton on.

    You don't need me to tell you what that means for Villa's tactics in this final few minutes.


    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    Almost brilliant from Kieran Dowell. His left-footed free-kick from 30 yards is curling towards the top corner but Sam Johnstone throws himself high to his left to palm the ball away.

    A great stop.

    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest


    You can feel the nerves at Villa Park. Mustapha Carayol shows great pace down the left with a Gareth Bale-esque run. He crosses towards Zach Clough but the substitute's shot is blocked.

    Forest have two or three more efforts on goal before the ball is properly cleared. Villa just about keep their opponents out.

  16. 'It was a six-point game'

    FT: Leeds 3-2 Ipswich

    Thoams Christiansen

    Leeds United boss Thomas Christiansen was pleased with the response of his players in their 3-2 win against Ipswich Town.

    Christiansen's side go on to face Cardiff on Tuesday in a double-header of Championship games against top-six opponents.

    "Ipswich were only two points away from us, so we knew it was a six-point game that we had to face today," he said.

    "The response was good and the result was better. We will have time to work on Cardiff, not too many days, but a few days will be enough."

  17. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    What can Nottingham Forest muster in these final 10 minutes?

    They'll know Villa have drawn plenty of games this season but the visitors need to get some support to Daryl Murphy.


    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    Another change for Villa. Jonathan Kodjia is replaced by fellow striker Scott Hogan.

    An exciting if occasionally frustrating performance from the Ivory Coast international.

  19. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    Villa have lost a bit of attacking impetus since Steve Bruce took off Keinan Davis. Forest are doing most of the attacking with Daryl Murphy still tirelessly harassing James Chester and John Terry.

    The home side do manage to build another attack but Jonathan Kodjia is flagged offside. He's frustrated to say the least.

  20. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    That's.... errrr.... ambitious.

    Mustapha Carayol has form for spectacular goals but this effort from 35 yards from the left channel dribbles horribly wide.

    Mark Warburton makes his final change bringing on Zach Clough for Ben Brereton.
