PL: Awoniyi’s goal gives Forest first away win of the season


Southampton manager Nathan Jones said the “blame lies solely with me” as bottom-of-the-table Saints lost to Nottingham Forest for their sixth successive Premier League defeat.

Forest recorded their first away league win of the season and moved out of the relegation zone, with Taiwo Awoniyi scoring the only goal at St Mary’s.

In the 27th minute, Lyanco carelessly lost possession on the halfway line with Brennan Johnson capitalising and racing clear before he pulled it back for Awoniyi, who buried the chance – only Forest’s second away league goal of 2022-23.

The Saints failed to have a shot on target and are yet to pick up a single point from four

matches since Jones replaced the sacked Ralph Hasenhuttl in November.

“We need to be better. It’s all on me, I fully take the blame for that,” Jones told Match of the Day.”

The blame lies solely with me, I set them up, asked them to do certain things but we need to give ourselves a better opportunity to win the game.

“We can’t gift a goal a game and we’ve done that almost every game. Something has to change quickly and we need a bit of luck.”
