    WOTHAPPEN Reports That Nottingham Forest striker, Taiwo Awoniyi, has said the game against Liverpool was emotional for him.

    The Nigerian scored the only goal as they shocked Liverpool 1-0 on Saturday.

    Awoniyi – who is happy with how Forest are sticking together as a family amid struggle in their debut Premier League season – revealed he was looking forward to facing the Merseysiders.

    “I think this team will stick together; we’re a family; the fans are always with us; we just have to keep on going,” Awoniyi told BT Sport post-match, as quoted by The Mirror.

    “I was looking forward to playing Liverpool because they signed me when I was 18 and it was an emotional game for me.

    “For me, I think it’s a good game for my team. We had the plan to stay compact, and in the end, we won. I’m very happy about it.”
