Awoniyi scores Nottingham Forest’s first EPL goal in 23 years

Taiwo Awoniyi scored Nottingham Forest’s first goal back in the Premier League, as they won 1-0 against West Ham on Sunday.

The Super Eagles striker became the club’s most expensive player this summer, after he sealed a move from Union Berlin.

Although he was left out for their first game at Newcastle United, Steve Cooper opted to start him against the Hammers.

Just before the break, Awoniyi was rewarded for his bustling runs, as he bumbled home a miscued effort from Jesse Lingard.

Toffolo was the creator, aiming at Lingard, but it was Awoniyi who applied the telling touch, the least he deserves following a vivacious first-half display.
