It probably won’t last long (and no-one won the league in September anyway), but a hard-fought victory away to Stoke City enabled Forest to sit at the top of the league, if only for one night.

In this mini match-report, Rich Ferraro comments on relatively quiet performances from a couple of Forest’s big hitters, once again praises Ben Watson, and has some words for the strength of the squad enabling Sabri’s substitutions.
