Nottingham Forest vs Leeds United English Premier League 5 feb 2023. Premier League football has been awaited by Nottingham Forest for more than 20 years, and the City Ground is turning into their fortress.
After winning a nerve-wracking but essential victory over Leeds, Forest have not suffered a league loss here since September 16. This puts Jesse Marsch under more criticism.
As the game came to a close, a few visiting fans began to chant for Marsch to be fired, and this is troubling for the American as the team’s performance continues to deteriorate.
Leeds’ last league victory was at the beginning of November, and they are currently only a goal difference away from the bottom three.
Marsch’s teammates were left to regret the loan signing from Paris St. Germain of three-time Champions League champion Keylor Navas, who make his Forest debut.
The Costa Rican goalkeeper was excellent in the first half to fend off Leeds, and his experience playing in England increased Forest’s chances of surviving.
What Marsch would give for a streak like Forest, who moved up to position 13 thanks to Brennan Johnson’s accurate volley.
Leeds will now play Manchester United twice in league play the following week, beginning on Wednesday at Old Trafford.
I accept full responsibility, and I need to figure out how to convert efforts into victories, he said.
“I accept the irritation and uncertainty and understand it. In order to avoid a tense situation, I must translate the positive developments into outcomes.
“The guys are all committed, and we have faith within. We’re working to put everything together, but we need to be prepar for a significant outcome by Wednesday.
Leeds did merit at least a point, but Steve Cooper is still doing a great job at Forest.
As is customary, freshly promoted teams must stake their survival prospects on their home record. Where they are unbeaten in seven games.
In front of their home fans, this wasn’t one of their better displays, but fortunately, Navas was in top form.
He’s a winner and has lots of experience, but Cooper noted that he would still. Have wanted to perform well on his debut for a new team.
He gets all the credit for the saves because he was outstanding in the first half. I admired his poise and decision-making; all he has demonstrated since arriving here is a desire to join in.
