Half-Time Report: Nottingham Forest lead Charlton Athletic 1-0 at half time

Nottingham Forest lead Charlton Athletic 1-0 at half time in their Championship encounter.

Nottingham Forest are leading Charlton Athletic 1-0 at half time, thanks to an early goal from former Addicks midfielder Andy Reid.

Forest took the lead with only three minutes gone when former Athletic man Reid bent a free kick into the top corner to put the visitors 1-0 ahead.

Charlton almost levelled after 15 minutes when Rhoys Wiggins had a cross deflected into the path of Simon Church, who headed goalwards, but Karl Darlow pulled off a good save to turn the ball away for a corner.

Wiggins was the provider again soon after when he played in Marvin Sordell, but the striker's effort was well blocked by the Forest defence.

Despite their efforts going forward, Charlton nearly went in two behind but for great defensive work from Lawrie Wilson, who slid in to clear off the line following a defensive mishap.
