EPL: Toney, DaSilva Pull Comeback For Brentford Against Forest

EPL: Toney, DaSilva Pull Comeback For Brentford Against Fore

Brentford v Forest

Brentford staged a late comeback to beat Nottingham Forest 2-1 in a crucial Championship match, leaving the visitors just one point above the relegation zone.

The game was evenly poised until Danilo gave Forest a surprise lead with the last kick of the first half.

Brentford piled on the pressure in the second half, but it was not until the 82nd minute that Ivan Toney scored a superb free-kick to level the scores. Brentford continued to push for the winner, and Josh Dasilva delivered it in injury time with a fantastic individual effort to earn the three points for the home team.

The result keeps Brentford's slim hopes of qualifying for Europe alive while deepening Forest's relegation worries. Brentford's head coach, Thomas Frank, was pleased with his team's performance, saying, "We didn't play our best, but sometimes you have to find a way to win, and we did it today."

Forest's boss, Steve Cooper, was understandably disappointed with the outcome, but he remained optimistic, saying, "If we stick at it, we give ourselves a chance of staying in the league."

Brentford's victory sees them remain in ninth place with 50 points, while Forest is in 17th place with 30 points, above Leicester City in 18th and 19th-placed Everton (28 points), who play each other on Monday.
