Nottingham Forest are out of the bottom three after coming from a goal down to claim a crucial win over Brighton at the City Ground.

Facundo Buonanotte put the visitors ahead in the 38th minute of a first half they dominated, albeit Forest had the chance to go in front early but Brennan Johnson’s penalty was well saved by Jason Steele.

Danilo burst through to put Steve Cooper’s side ahead on 69 minutes and when the video assistant referee spotted a handball by Brighton skipper Lewis Dunk, Morgan Gibbs-White converted the second spot kick of the game to seal a precious win.

Forest move above Everton and Leicester into 17th, a point above the drop zone while Brighton stay eighth.
