The Liberty Stadium
As a late winner struck for Nottingham Forest swansea missing their unbeaten record.
Substitute Semedo, on loan from Benfica, struck his Forest goal five minutes from the time to extend his side’s unbeaten streak to eight games.
A thorn in Swansea’s side throughout, lewis Grabban, shook off the interest of Matt Grimes and broke down the perfect flank to roll the ball and he made no mistake from six metres.
It was no less than Forest deserved from a Swansea side, who stay top of their Sky Bet Championship however could have secured their very best start to a season with a win.
Swansea were gifted an early opener Forest goalkeeper Brice Samba hesitated on the ball close to profiting, and also Borja Baston came.
But Forest chopped after 16 minutes throughout the Swansea defence and then would be the better side for big areas of the first half.
The cross of Yuri Ribeiro was cleverly flicked by joao Carvalho in to the path and the striker of Sammy Ameobi.
Forest went even closer when the cross of Ameobi was cleared up to Ben Watson 20 yards out.
The midfielder headed the ball back into the box and the extending Grabban switched it .
Samba Sow also slit wide as Mike van der Hoorn and defenders Jake Bidwell attempted risky efforts from 30, and Swansea’s frustration at failing to construct pressure was clear.
Michael Dawson responded smartly to block the effort of Borja in the post 2 minutes, although the Forest target was not jeopardized on either event.
After the period and Grabban latched on to Bersant Celina pass to install Carvalho to get an opportunity which Woodman kicked away at his near post, forest stayed bright.
Celina was shortly substituted after that lapse and Swansea acquired some momentum that was late when Andre Ayew led Bidwell’s cross narrowly wide.
However, Woodman was to the rescue to trick Joe Worrall’s volley around a post and Sow’s effort was back after making his debut for Wales from international duty, obstructed by Joe Rodon from the subsequent corner.
Ayew has turned into a growing influence on the competition and he tested Samba prior to winning.
Forest continued to stand firm and the strong running and unselfish attitude of Grabban finally sealed the things.
