Teenager Rubin Colwill scored twice as Cardiff City came from behind to claim victory and

keep Nottingham Forest winless and bottom of the Championship.

Lewis Grabban’s first goal this season gave Forest the lead at the interval.

Colwill equalised within a minute of coming on as a substitute before firing home the 73rd-minute winner.

Forest have just one point from six games and have made their worst start to a season in 108 years, adding to

the pressure on boss Chris Hughton.

Their fans made their displeasure known at the final whistle after Cardiff capped an impressive comeback that

moves them up to eighth on 11 points of the game on that day.

Despite the pre-match talk being about Hughton’s future, it was his former Republic of Ireland team-mate

Mick McCarthy who was dealing with selection issues until kick-off.

Cardiff had lost midfielders Joe Ralls and Ryan Giles to injury and illness, and suffered another issue when

Leandro Bacuna hurt his groin in the warm-up and was replaced by 20-year old academy product Sam Bowen in the starting line-up.

However, despite their preparation problems, Cardiff made a fast start at the City Ground.

Another reprieve followed when Joel Bagan’s looping header from Perry Ng’s ball struck the crossbar, with Cardiff

somehow unable to turn home the rebound.

Lyle Taylor twisted and fired over the bar with Forest’s first chance, but they made no mistake with their second

opportunity when Grabban swept home – via a slight deflection – after Max Lowe’s run and cross.

The Bluebirds waited only 10 minutes into the second half before Wales forward Kieffer Moore and Colwill came on 

and they combined to score just 53 seconds after their introduction with Colwill finishing after Moore headed the ball into his path.
