Nottingham Forest are 2-1 ahead at the break in their home match against Yeovil Town.

Nottingham Forest are beating Yeovil Town at half time in their Championship match at the City Ground.

Forest were the stronger team in the early stages, with Jamie Paterson having a shot blocked, before Andy Reid fired wide of the target.

Kieffer Moore had a rare attack for the away side following sloppy play by Forest, but he could only drag his effort wide.

The home side got the goal that their start deserved with 16 minutes played. Paterson collected the ball behind the Yeovil defence and saw his shot hit Byron Webster on its way in.

However, Gary Johnson's men responded well with James Hayter forcing Karl Darlow to save. They grabbed the equaliser four minutes later when Moore connected with Jamie McAllister's cross to nod home.

Despite an improvement by Yeovil, Forest went 2-1 ahead before half time. Jamie Mackie pulled the ball back across goal and Simon Cox was there to tap in.
