Nottingham Forest left it until deep into stoppage time to steal all 3 points in a 4-3 thriller against Wigan Athletic.

It's not the first engaging 4-3 win the Forest supporters have seen at the City Ground so far this season, with the same score produced in their first game against Burton Albion.

It was an important triumph for Forest, who now climb up to 11th in the table having lost to Brentford in their previous game.

It was Forest who opened the scoring through striker Britt Assombalonga, injuring himself in the process just the 6th minute of the match.

The away side pegged them back with an equaliser through Michael Jacobs on 11 minutes, but after the break Forest took a 3-1 lead after 2 goals from the impressive Oliver Burke, who can be very pleased with his early season performances.

Unfortunately for Forest, however, in the second half Will Grigg was indeed on fire and scored on 65' and 86' to seemingly snatch a point for the Latics.

All that remained was for young centre-back signing Thomas Lam to pop up in the dying seconds to send Forest fans into raptures. 

The post game celebrations from Forest fans have spilled onto Twitter. Here's what a handful of supporters had to say after the game.
