Chris Hughton’s Reds celebrated two straight wins by securing three stylish points on the City Ground

Nottingham Forest scored an impressive 3-1 win over QPR as they beat in a row over the Easter weekend

Alex Mighten, Lewis Grabban and James Garner secured three points for the Reds, while Lyndon Dykes brought the visitors some late consolation

Forest saw a lot of the ball in the first 45 minutes and took up some promising positions without doing too much for Seny Dieng

Grabban shot a good chance six minutes from time before Ryan Yates saw a strong header from James Garner’s corner shortly after

Filip Krovinovic pulled Dieng into action shortly before half an hour, with a curling stroke that was blocked by the visiting stopper

The Rangers made their way into the game during half-time but Brice Samba still had a fairly quiet afternoon as Stefan Johansen and Charlie Austin both lost the goal with the best chances for the away side in the first half / p>

And it was the hosts who scored a goal for good during the break thanks to Mighten’s third goal of the season

The youngster came into play from close range after Sammy Ameobi did a great job beforehand He was able to win the ball well and drive it into the penalty area before bringing it over the goal for his teammate to finish

Ameobi tried 2-0 after the break, the winger was played by Grabban but saw Dieng parry his low drive with Mighten unable to get there in time for follow-up

Mighten shot wide shortly afterwards, while Dieng tied for a delightful curling free-kick from Garner as the Reds tried to end the game

Forest had threatened, and with 63 minutes on the clock they finally got their second

It was a fabulous goal from Grabban, who found the top corner with an excellent shot on the turn from 25 yards

Garner then scored the 3-0 towards the last 20 minutes with an equally impressive goal, this time with an outside free kick that curled up and drifted over the goalkeeper

It closed the three points in style but the hosts couldn’t finish with a goal as Dykes scored late for Rangers

The last few minutes are now, but it was certainly a game on the city grounds!

Murray replaces Grabban while Freeman changes for Ameobi in a double substitution for the Reds

Rolled it in from a tight angle and it just drifted over the goalkeeper. Fantastic stuff

Good job by Blackett in the lower left creates a chance for Mighten, but the winger can’t quite finish this time

Ameobi saved a low shot from the penalty area after being played by Grabban

Christie brings out Grabban with another nice long pass, sets up another move for the Reds as they knock the ball over

Free kick to QPR in a decent position, however, you can’t make the most of it – the ball goes straight to Samba through a comfortable catch

Was a promising start to the game. You have caused some problems from set pieces, in particular

In another corner of Garner, the ball hit Ameobi, but his low hit from the edge of the box is blocked

Nice corner by Garner Yates it hit the near post. Neat header but was deleted from the line
