Nottingham Forest 1-0 West Ham: Awoniyi scores first PL goal

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

Super Eagle striker, Taiwo Awoniyi scored his first Premier League goal as Nottingham Forest defeated West Ham United 1-0 on Sunday afternoon.

The Nigeria international’s first-half effort ended the club’s 23-year Premier League goal drought as Forest last scored in Premier League on May 16, 1999.

In the process, he becomes the 37th Nigerian to score an English elite division goal.

Having made a cameo appearance against Newcastle United in the opening day, the former Union Berlin striker was handed a starter’s role – pairing Jesse Lingard and Brennan Johnson in a three-man attack.

After featuring for 72 minutes, Awoniyi was subbed off for Sam Surridge, while Senegal prospect Moussa Niakhate – who sustained an injury was replaced by Steve Cook seven minutes later.

Despite a late attacking surge from David Moyes’ Hammers, they could not get the much-desired leveller as they returned home with heads bowed low.

Awoniyi would be hoping to get on the scorer’s sheet again when Forest travel to Goodison Park for their outing against Frank Lampard’s Everton next Saturday.
