Latics too strong for 10-man Forest

Published 1 Comments

Alex McLeish is still waiting for his first win as Nottingham Forest boss after his 10-man side bowed out of the FA Cup against League One opponents Oldham following a 3-2 defeat.

Forest defender Danny Collins was sent off after an hour at the City Ground as Oldham struck three times in the second half, twice from Robbie Simpson, to give Paul Dickov's outfit a deserved victory.

Oldham striker Matt Smith put through his own goal from just six yards in the first half before the Latics struck back with three quick goals in the secons half, while Billy Sharp's added-time effort for Forest was too little, too late.
