Review:
A high scoring game for us, and a very well deserved away win at Steve Cooper's old club in Wales. The rain poured down for most of the match and we went in 0-0 at half time before Philip Zinckernagel's blast shortly after the restart was added to by a Grabban tap-in. Swansea pulled one back before we took another 2-goal lead through Brennan Johnson and then Cafu scored his first Forest goal right at the end.

Stats:
This is the first time we scored four goals for over 2 years. The last game was on 27 November, 2019 against QPR (4-0).
Moving up into 8th place puts us in our highest position since finishing 7th at the end of the 2019/20 season.
