Scenes at Nottingham Forest as Ben Bereton bags 93rd minute winner v Villa (Video)

Nottingham Forest 2 – Aston Villa 1

Considering how much upheaval there has been at Nottingham Forest and how much Aston Villa spent in the January transfer window, this is a fairly surprising result in the Championship.

Especially, as both sides are locked on the same number of points: 36 after 29 games for Villa this season, and 30 for Forest.

Jonathan Kodjia fired Aston Villa into a 19th minute lead thanks to a fine finish from a Jack Grealish assist.

Britt Assombalonga guides the Forest comeback

Forest found a way back into the match on 42 minutes following a mistake from Aston Villa goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

Britt Assombalonga pounced for 1-1.

Villa continued to push for a winner but their cause was harmed when Jack Grealish was sent off for a second bookable offence on 78 minutes.

With 20 minutes to go, Forest threw on 17-year-old Ben Bereton and on 93 minutes he won the game with a volley from a Assombalonga assist.

Crazy scenes!
