Hughton Pleased With Three Points From Forest



Chris Hughton had to admit that he enjoyed seeing his side come back from a goal down to comprehensively beat Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Sunday.

Blues looked to be heading towards being the first team beaten my McClaren`s men at home this season after Ishmael Miller headed the home side into a 35th minute lead from a corner.

But Chris Burke had other ideas and beat Forest keeper Lee Camp with a flashing effort from 30 yards that thundered into the net.

Chris Wood added a second soon after good work from Keith Fahey and Burke.

Then with just two minutes left on the clock, Blues rubbed salt into the wounds when Wood grabbed his second and Birmingham`s third after a mistake by Luke Chambers.

Hughton told Sky Sports: 'In football you need a spark and Chris provided that for us with an exceptional strike.

'It gave us something to build on and the players sensed then they could go on and win the match. It would have been easy to settle for a point but the players wanted to push forward.

'We also had players in Chris Wood and Marlon King to come off the bench and influence the game and that's what they did."


After the game, Forest manager Steve McClaren resigned.
