Previous encounters: Nottingham Forest

Forest haven’t enjoyed recent trips to the Turf as they’ve come away with three points just once in ten visits, writes James Bird.

Last time out

Forest visited for a cup clash at Turf Moor earlier this season. The Clarets came out on top to progress to the next round thanks to a brace from Danny Ings. Burnley had just reached second in the league before the tie where Forest made 11 changes to their side, including bringing in now in form man Jamie Paterson. Matt Derbyshire put the visitors ahead from a Dexter Blackstock flick on before Ings took the game on. Kieran Trippier found the in form man with his cross and Ings turned before firing home from the edge of the box to equalise. Junior Stanislas and Keith Treacy tested Dorus De Vries before Ings found the net again. A Stanislas free kick from deep was skillfully glanced home from Ings.

Burnley 2 – 1 Nottingham Forest. 24 September 2013.

One for us

In March of the promotion season Burnley hammered Forest 5-0 at Turf Moor. It was the Clarets 50th game of the season and Robbie Blake, Wade Elliott, Clarke Carlisle, Jay Rodriguez and Joey Gudjonsson all provided goals in our third successive league win. Steven Thompson was forced out of the game early on due to an ankle injury following a robust challenge from Wes Morgan. That day, the Turf Moor playing surface was poor and bobbly – something that we have not had to worry about since the installation of the current superb pitch.

Blake opened the scoring with a great free kick after 19 minutes, Elliott’s goal followed on 38 minutes but it was mostly a dull first half with few chances. An exciting second half followed where Burnley had the chances to score even more than five, though we had to settle for just a further three on 51, 55 and 73 minutes.

Burnley 5 – 0 Nottingham Forest. 14 March 2009.

One for them

Nottingham Forest’s last win at Turf Moor was back in September 2003. On a day when Burnley had two thirds of the possession, Marlon Harewood, Andy Reid and former Claret Gareth Taylor all scored to seal the win for Forest.

Last five


  1. In 1983 I sponsored a ball for a Burnley match, the season they became Third Division champions. During a lull in the proceedings I wandered out into the seating area of the Bob Lord stand. There was a glorious sunset that night, and atmosphere of the stadium seemed charged with the spirits of all those legends who had graced that hallowed Turf for so many glorious decades. They were there again last Saturday, inspiring the current squad to thirty minutes of football that those who were there, will never forget. In fifty years of following this great football club, I can only remember one other occasion when I have been so emotionally moved, and that was the Orient game. Turf Moor is truly our spiritual home, and I believe the best is yet to come.
