Southampton vs. Nottingham Forest Highlights

With their first away victory in the top flight this year, Forest increased their chances of making it through the season thanks to Taiwo Awoniyi's fifth goal of the campaign. For this reason, Nottingham Forest moved out of the bottom three of the Premier League, while Southampton dropped to the bottom of the table.

Southampton vs. Nottingham Forest Summary

Steve Cooper's resurgent team earned a vital victory on the south coast since they have now collected 11 points from the last 21 opportunities available after only managing six from the previous 33. Meanwhile, the Saints' worrisome losing streak, which now stands at six Premier League games, greatly contributed to their demise, making an already vulnerable situation more risky.

After another disappointing performance at St. Mary's, manager Nathan Jones, who has presided over four of those defeats, had little reason to believe he was about to embark on a successful survival mission. In the 27th minute, Nottingham Forest took the lead thanks to Taiwo Awoniyi, who earlier hit the crossbar through the impressive Brennan Johnson.

The team with the worst away record in the division traveled to Hampshire to face the team with the worst home record. The two-time European champions. Before the game began, an extravagant light show filled the stadium, and the excitement immediately spilled out onto the field as both teams missed fantastic opening opportunities.

Dean Henderson of Forest made a bad clearing, allowing the Saints' leading scorer, Adams, to be passed cleanly through by Kyle Walker-Peters. Adams then wasted time and space by skewing wastefully wide. The horrendous miss was a huge letdown for the guests, and with their first assault, they almost made things worse for the Saints.

After Awoniyi produced a low cross from the left, Johnson was unmarked when Ryan Yates' mishit shot fell to him, but Johnson's rising shot hit the goal frame. Southampton would not have a second chance because of their continued poor defense, which has been a defining characteristic of a disappointing season.

When Saints defender Lyanco hesitated and then carelessly gave up the ball near halfway, Johnson was able to break free and square for an easy goal from Awoniyi. During a tense second quarter, the home team had a ton of possession but failed to put Henderson to the test while looking vulnerable to counterattacks.

They were given an additional four minutes to search for a priceless leveler. But despite loud jeers coming from three sides of the stadium, Forest were more than comfortable and joyfully celebrated their first away top-flight victory since a 2-1 victory at Blackburn in May 1999.
