PLAYERS: Andy Reid
TEAMS: Philadelphia Eagles
With new owners and a new manager in O'Driscoll, Forest had to be patient in their attempts to break down a stubborn City side. But Cox, signed in the last week from West Brom, was left on the bench following his appearance for the Republic of Ireland in Serbia in midweek but he made an instant impact on his arrival. He latched onto an Andy Reid through ball and cut back from the by line for Adlene Guedioura to mark his first league game as a permanent Forest player by sidefooting home from eight yards.
