Earnshaw caps fine week

Published Add your comment

Robert Earnshaw capped a memorable week by scoring the only goal against Peterborough to secure Nottingham Forest's 11th successive home win in the Championship.

The Wales striker became a father for the first time on Monday - and he celebrated in style with the only goal of the game against Peterborough. Earnshaw was on hand to fire home his 10th goal in as many games at the City Ground as Forest added to rock-bottom Peterborough's misery.

"It has been an amazing week for me and to score the winner so soon after my son Silva's arrival is just perfect," said Earnshaw.

"It's important that we continue to try to apply pressure to West Brom.

"We know that eight points is a lot to make up with just eight games left but who you never know what could happen. The biggest thing for us was to get a win and then look to beat Crystal Palace on Tuesday."
