NOTTINGHAM, England (AP) - Nicolas Dominguez scored his first goal for 10-man Nottingham Forest as the hosts held on for a 1-1 draw against Brentford on Sunday in the Premier League.
Things looked bleak for Forest when it went down to 10 men just before the hour at the City Ground with Moussa Niakhate picking up a second yellow card, and the immediately conceding to Christian Norgaard from the resulting free kick.
But Forest rallied and Argentina international Dominguez leveled seven minutes later in the 65th with a looping header that Bees goalkeeper Mark Flekken appeared to misjudge.
Forest was able to see out the remaining 35 minutes with relative comfort to maintain its unbeaten start to the season at home.
The draw means Brentford has now gone five games without a win as its tricky start to the campaign continues.
There was a change to the match officials' lineup after Darren England was dropped as fourth official following his mistake on Saturday night when, as VAR in Tottenham's game against Liverpool, he failed to act properly in overturning the decision to rule out Luis Diaz's goal for offside.
