There were jubilant scenes on and off the pitch at the final whistle as Forest enjoyed their best day since returning to the top flight this season after a 23-year absence following a 1-0 victory over English Premier League giants, Liverpool FC.

Taiwo Awoniyi, who left Liverpool in 2021 without making a competitive appearance, hit the winner from close range after his initial attempt came back off a post.

Liverpool were a long way from their best as Virgil van Dijk wasted their best chance – and remain without an away league win this season.

It could have been worse for the visitors but Brennan Johnson hit a post in the closing moments with Liverpool keeper Alisson well off his line.
