The Nigerian international reached double digits in terms of goals scored, aiding Nottingham Forest to secure a 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace.

This season, Taiwo Awoniyi has found the back of the net in eight Premier League games, consistently putting Nottingham Forest ahead with a 1-0 lead in each match.

This accomplishment surpasses the record set by Andrew Johnson of Crystal Palace in the 2004-05 season, as no other player from a newly promoted club has scored the opening goal more times in a single season (9).

Notably, Taiwo Awoniyi becomes the first Nottingham Forest player since the 1994/95 season to score more than ten goals in the Premier League, an achievement he accomplished during his debut season.
