Forest took the lead through Lyle Taylor’s first-half strike fired, but the host rallied twice second half to ensure they start their campaign with a win.

Swedish striker Viktor Gyokeres 81st-minute equaliser spark the beginning of their comeback before Kyle McFadzean finally gave them the much need lead to send fans into ecstasy.
