It was the away side's turn to threaten soon after when Adlene Guedioura fired wide, while Ikechi Anya missed the target at the other end.

Forest came withing inches of doubling their advantage at the end of the opening 45 minutes, but Henri Lansbury's shot across goal came back off the post before Troy Deeney missed a simple header for Watford.
