Nottingham Forest fought back from a goal down to tie with Brentford, thanks to Nicolas Dominguez’s first goal.

After a dull first half, the game erupted early in the second when Moussa Niakhate was sent off for standing on Yoane Wissa’s heel.

Brentford captain Christian Norgaard put his side ahead from the resulting free-kick, powering home a header from Mathias Jensen’s ball for his first goal of the season.

But the lead lasted only seven minutes until Argentina international Dominguez, who joined Forest from Bologna in September, scored an amazing diving header that looped over visitors goalkeeper Mark Flekken.

Victory would have taken either team into 10th place, but on a gloomy day in Nottingham, neither could get a second goal.

Brentford substitute Neal Maupay, on loan from Everton, had a chance to score but couldn’t connect cleanly inside the penalty area.

The result means that the Bees have now gone five Premier League games without a win since a 3-0 victory at Fulham in the season’s second fixture.
