City Ground

Former Nottingham Forest stars reunited for their Championship fixture last night.

Wes Morgan may be closing in on winning the Premier League title with Leicester City, but he still has time for the club which helped him become the player he is today.

The Leicester captain, 32, played for Forest for a decade, making more than 400 appearances for the club before signing for the Foxes in 2012.

He is currently three wins away with Leicester from winning a surprise league title with five games remaining, a feat nobody saw coming.

Morgan was back at the City Ground last night for Nottingham Forest's game against Brighton and Hove Albion, as a guest of former teammate John Thompson, who played for the club between 2001 and 2007, and was not the only familiar face.

 

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Lewis McGugan, another ex-Forest player, was also in attendance, along with Gregor Robertson, currently of Grimsby Town, as well as Julian Bennett, who retired last summer after making 199 professional appearances across his career.

Forest were unable to make it a happy return for the former players, losing 2-1 at the death to a last minute Steve Sidwell goal.
