NOTTINGHAM FOREST CLIMBED to the top of the Championship and poured more misery over bottom club Fulham last night with a 5-3 win at the City Ground.

Striker Britt Assombalonga was the star of the show with a hat-trick but it was team-mate Michail Antonio who scored the goal of the night on 77 minutes.

The former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder held off his man and picked a long ball out of the sky with a sublime first touch before turning and tucking the ball into the bottom corner.

Not quite Dennis Bergkamp v Argentina but the Dutchman would be proud of control like that.
