Williams sent off as Silva stun­ner ce­ments For­est’s spot

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport - Championsh­ip By John Percy at the City Ground

Sabri Lamouchi calls this stage of the sea­son “the money time” and the riches of the Premier League re­main tan­ta­lis­ingly in sight for Not­ting­ham For­est.

Lamouchi’s first sea­son in English foot­ball could yet have a mem­o­rable end­ing as For­est lifted them­selves back into fourth place, after a wonderful Ti­ago Silva goal.

The Por­tuguese mid­fielder ce­mented For­est’s place in the play­offs with a bril­liant free-kick that left Bris­tol City’s own top-six hopes ap­pear­ing re­mote.

City de­fender Ash­ley Williams was shown a red card late in the con­test, after ap­pear­ing to el­bow full-back Yuri Ribeiro in the throat.

Lamouchi said: “We are hav­ing a fan­tas­tic sea­son, but we must stay fo­cused to the end.”

Lee John­son, the City man­ager, said: “It’s soul-de­stroy­ing we’ve come away with­out any points.”
