Awoniyi made a triumphant return from injury, earning his first start since Forest’s 1-1 draw with Brentford back in October.

Just five minutes into the game, Super Eagles defender Ola Aina helped Forest secure the lead.

Anthony Elanga displayed his skills on the left, skillfully evading Matty Cash’s challenge before delivering a precise pass to Harry Toffolo.

Toffolo swiftly played it to Ola Aina, who executed a low shot across the goal, finding the bottom corner and handing Forest a 1-0 advantage.

Even though Toffolo had other options in the middle, he spotted Aina’s run and passed to the full-back.

The Super Eagles defender had ample time to plan his shot, unleashing a brilliant first-time strike past Martinez. Aina’s spectacular first goal of the season propelled Forest to a 1-0 lead at halftime.

While Villa struggled to find their footing, the home team continually posed a threat, and before anyone realized, Orel Mangala doubled their lead barely two minutes into the second half.

Toffolo’s left-sided cross was kept alive by Awoniyi, who swiftly passed it back to the left-back.

The ball found its way to Mangala on the edge, who unleashed a powerful shot towards the goal.

Martinez made an attempt to deflect it, but the ball soared into the air, bouncing just over the line.

Toffolo notched his second assist of the game with a clever pass to the edge of the box, allowing Mangala’s effort to sneak past Martinez.

Throughout the match, Forest outperformed Villa on all fronts. After losing three consecutive home Premier League matches in August and September 2022, they have only suffered two defeats in 19 games at the City Ground since then.

Looking ahead, Taiwo Awoniyi, Ola Aina, and their teammates will now shift attention to their next fixture against West Ham on Sunday.

This victory marks a turning point in their season, and they are determined to maintain their winning momentum.
