Result: Nottingham Forest beaten in pre-season opener by Odense

Dexter Blackstock and Jamie Paterson are on the scoresheet as Nottingham Forest lose 4-2 in their first pre-season friendly against Danish side Odense.

Nottingham Forest lost their first game of pre-season by going down 4-2 to Danish side Odense this evening.

Both sides had openings in the early stages and it was Forest who broke the deadlock in the 20th minute.

Dexter Blackstock was the scorer, heading home Jorge Grant's deep cross from the right wing.

Forest had the chance to double their lead from the penalty spot a quarter of an hour later, but Henri Lansbury fluffed his lines and Forest were immediately punished as Kenneth Zohore tucked home a penalty for Odense.

The heavens opened at the start of the second half and Forest handled the conditions better early on after the interval.

However, it was the Danish side who scored the third and then quickly added a fourth to go two goals in front as Rasmus Festersen and Zohore found the net.

Forest halved the deficit thanks to a Jamie Paterson free kick, but Odense restored their two-goal advantage seven minutes from time as Mathias Greve stroked home.

The Championship season is exactly a month away and Dougie Freedman's side next face Mjallby on Sunday.
