'If It's Football, It's Vital'

STFC: Swindon Town 3-2 Nottingham Forest

Togo triallist Thomas Dossevi grabbed a first half double as Swindon Town defeated Nottingham Forest by three goals to two at the County Ground this afternoon.

Dossevi needed only eight minutes to score after good work from Douglas, Amankwaah and Pericard resulting in the former Nantes man scoring.

Two goals in the space of five minutes by Gareth McLeary put Nottingham Forest in front but it was short lived as Dossevi headed home well from a Jon-Paul McGovern cross.

Before the subsitutions finished the games flow, Town scored the decisive third goal thanks to a howler from Forest man Kelvin Wilson.
