Nottingham Forest 1-2 Hull City: Josh Magennis and Jarrod Bowen give 10-man Hull victory

Josh Magennis and Jarrod Bowen gave Hull City just a second Championship away win of the season as they held on with 10 men to claim an impressive victory at Nottingham Forest.

Magennis opened the scoring shortly before half-time but after the break was shown a straight red card for a needless lunge on Ben Watson.

In between, Bowen had doubled Hull's lead but the visitors were forced to see out the final 20 minutes a man down.

Matty Cash found Forest a way back into the game but they could not produce an equaliser and slipped to consecutive defeats.

Forest had put together a 10-game unbeaten run before losing 1-0 at Wigan on Sunday and lost for only the third time this season, missing the chance to go second in the table.

After falling two goals behind, Cash provided a quick response for Forest by poking home but the hosts could not force a leveller despite several late corners.

They fell behind shortly before half-time as Callum Elder cut a ball back to Jon Toral, whose shot was turned in by Magennis for his third goal of the season.

The advantage was extended three minutes into the second half with Toral again setting up the goal, breaking the offside trap and squaring for Bowen to turn home.

Hull were forced to see out victory the hard way as Magennis went in for a challenge on Watson with a raised foot inside the Forest half and was sent off.

But Hull survived to claim a second away win of the season, bouncing back from consecutive defeats.

Nottingham Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"Of course I'm disappointed to lose at home. Before the game, we were looking for a different result with a massive opportunity to move up to a better position, but we missed the opportunity.

"We gave Hull what they were looking for - to play on the counter-attack. After the first goal, it was difficult, After the second one, it was even more difficult.

"We scored immediately and after that we started to be more aggressive to create more, but we didn't have too many chances."

Hull manager Grant McCann told BBC Radio Humberside:

"We were outstanding. With Josh getting sent off, we had to defend doggedly.

"The one time we did let them in, Cash scores. It was probably too easy that time, but we got the job done."
