    Swansea seized the initiative here by scoring from the first notable attack of the game, Liam Cullen volleying in just his second senior goal after being picked out by Wayne Routledge.

    Steve Cooper's team have been moving the ball around nicely, and their second goal duly arrived thanks to a sweet strike from distance by skipper Matt Grimes.

    The only disappointment for the hosts so far was an early injury to Routledge.

    Forest, meantime, must do considerably better if they are to get back into this tie.

    A man has been arrested after an officer was racially abused and spat on as she helped carry out an arrest, police said.

    Officers were called to a property on Abbotsford Drive in St Ann's at about 01:00 on Friday, where they "were met by a suspect who quickly became aggressive".

    A Nottinghamshire Police spokesman said the suspect spat in the face of the arresting officer and is then alleged to have made a racist remark while being led away.

    The man was held on suspicion of assault, assaulting a police officer and being drunk and disorderly, and is currently in custody.
