Etone Football Education 2 – 3 Nottingham forest 

Top of the table clash saw Etone WBA host Nottingham Forest at the Pingles stadium. First 20 minutes took time for Etone to settle in against the forest wing backs who had time and space to get on the ball. The rewards came with a goal unmarked at the back post after a cross from the edge of the box. Etone grew into the game though and created chances of their own including a penalty that was saved shortly before the break. At half time although the Forest chances had been kept to a minimum they had the lead and doubled it in the 55th minute after a silly foul on the edge of the box resulted directly in a goal across the keeper. With it all to do Etone dug deep and the chances became coming thick and fast. A combination of good goalkeeping and poor finishing kept Etone at bay till Zack broke through and made it 2-1 clipping over the sliding goalkeeper. Shortly after Cain went down for a clear penalty in the box allowing Josh to make no mistake this time bringing it back to 2-2. With 15 mins to play the Forest defense was settled in, only relived by kicking long to their striker. More chances came and went when finally against the run of play the Forest number 9 broke through the middle of the defence and was caught late for the 3rd penalty of the game. Struck against the underside of the bar and in was the last real action of the game resulting in a frustrating afternoon for Etone WBA and a 3-2 win for Forest on the road.
