Fawaz Al-Hasawi reacts to Nottingham Forest’s win, thanks fans

Forest City Ground

Nottingham Forest edged past Brighton & Hove Albion 3-2 away from home in the Championship on Saturday.

Nottingham Forest owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi has taken to social networking site Twitter to hail the team’s return to winning ways on Saturday.

Forest won their first game under new manager Dougie Freedman as they got the better of Brighton & Hove Albion away from home.

It was not the most comprehensive of wins, but it was certainly thrilling, as the Nottingham-based outfit edged the encounter 3-2 at The Amex.

Lewis Dunk put Brighton in the lead in the 42nd minute when he headed home Danny Holla's free kick, but Danny Collins restored parity for Forest just minutes later.

Forest went 3-1 ahead in the second half, thanks to Henri Lansbury and Ben Osborn, but Albion substitute Beram Kayal's header in the final minutes set up a tense finish.

However, Forest eventually picked up the three points, leading Al-Hasawi to revel in the win on Twitter.

The Kuwaiti businessman was appreciative of the fans and thanked them for their loyalty, while making it clear that he believes that all the Forest supporters are “loyal” to the club.

Forest are currently 12th in the Championship table with 37 points from 29 matches.
