Nottingham Forest 2-1 Luton Town: Joe Lolley double lifts Reds to fifth

Joe Lolley has scored three of his seven goals this season in the past three games

Joe Lolley helped lift Nottingham Forest to within five points of the automatic promotion places after scoring twice as they came from behind to beat Luton Town.

A fine low finish from Hatters forward Harry Cornick, having met Dan Potts’ cut-back pass, had given the Championship’s bottom side a deserved lead after they had piled early pressure on the high-flying hosts.

Simon Sluga’s failure to deal with a tame shot from Lolley, which squeezed in at the near post, allowed Forest back into the game, although the Croatian goalkeeper did atone when he saved well from a Joe Worrall header to ensure it remained all square at the break.

There, however, was no stopping Lolley’s second as the forward cut in off the right wing before unleashing a swerving shot that consigned Luton to a 10th successive league defeat away from home.

Lewis Grabban then took his goal tally to 15 for the season, adding a late third for Forest from the penalty spot after Sonny Bradley blocked a Tiago Silva free-kick with his arm.
