Emmanuel Dennis’ delicate chip was not enough as Alexander Isak scored two goals to condemn Nottingham Forest to a 2-1 loss at the City Ground in a Premier League game on Friday.
The Super Eagles attacker was handed a rare start by his manager and he made the most of it. In just his third start for Nottingham Forest, Dennis scored a delicate chip to put his side up.
A defensive blunder from Sven Botman gifted Dennis a half-chance which he buried with class.

Dennis was emotional after scoring the goal. His move from Watford to Nottingham Forest has not gone as planned as he hardly gets playing chances.
At the end of the first half, Alexander Isak equalized for the visitors.
The Swede then completed a 2-1 comeback win for Newcastle with a stoppage-time penalty.
Emmanuel Dennis played for 79 minutes as Forest lost their first game at the City Ground in 10 matches going back to September.
