10 Man Brighton Beats Nottingham Forest 3-2

brighton-nottingham-forest

10-man Brighton crushed Nottingham Forest in a thrilling five-goal thriller at the City Ground, handing them their first home loss of the season thanks to two goals from substitute Joao Pedro.

Pedro’s double came after Evan Ferguson had tied the score after Anthony Elanga had put Forest ahead early.

He was substituted for the injured Ansu Fati during the first half, and he scored a header deep into injury time and a penalty kick from the spot after the break to give the Seagulls a 3-1 lead.

Following a video assistant referee (VAR) review, Morgan Gibbs-White scored a penalty to give Forest a response. Lewis Dunk was given a yellow card for disobedience before accepting it, and he received a straight red card for foul and abusive language 12 seconds later.

Roberto de Zerbi and his team celebrated wildly when the final whistle blew, and the Brighton manager attributed it to the challenges his team had been facing lately.

“It [the result] was a big emotion – we are suffering too much,” he told BBC Sport.

“We have too many injuries, we lost four points against Sheffield United and Fulham at home. To win is difficult – my celebration is because we are suffering too much at the moment.

“We want to celebrate with our fans. If you have the right attitude, you win the game.”

After just three minutes, Elanga gave Steve Cooper’s Forest the lead with a forceful header at the back post after Gibbs-White’s excellent cross.

The visitors produced their own opportunities, first through Fati’s shot at goal, Billy Gilmour’s rocket over the crossbar, and finally, following a dazzling sequence of play, a tame effort that failed to test goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos.

Ferguson then curled a shot into the bottom corner to give Brighton a well-deserved equalizer.

Pedro did a great job diving to meet Pascal Gross’s cross as the half came to a close, giving Brighton the lead, but Tariq Lamptey’s injury made things worse.

Despite being the liveliest players, Lamptey and Fati’s early exits did not lessen Albion’s offensive threat.

After the half, Pedro—who had been fouled by Chris Wood—scored his fifth penalty for the Seagulls, increasing the visitors’ lead even further.

Gibbs-White’s penalty kick gave Forest a last-ditch hope after a video assistant review determined that Jack Hinshelwood had fouled Callum Hudson-Odoi in the penalty area.

Cooper claims he wants to support referees but was angered by Anthony Taylor’s call to award Brighton’s penalty and the fact that VAR had to step in to give Forest a spot kick.

“I just think if he gives [Brighton’s] penalty, he’s got to give so many,” he said. “The fact he’s seen that in open play and not seen ours, needing VAR, sums up where refereeing is at. He is number one, apparently.

“I’m trying to be in the supportive camp, but then we see that. We’ve not played well enough, but having got momentum, to see a decision like that is not easy.”

Despite Forest’s hopes of a thrilling equalizer, Brighton managed to hold on thanks to a spectacular save from keeper Bert Verbruggen, who stopped Ryan Yates deep into the 10-minute added period. The home team was unable to capitalize on their man advantage.
