Nottingham Forest’s Matty Cash has revealed that his late equaliser against West Bromwich Albion in February is his favourite goal of his career.
The 22-year-old has scored 16 times in his 137 senior appearances, finding the net on 13 occasions for Forest and three times while on loan for Dagenham & Redbridge.
Despite spending the 2019/20 campaign at right-back, Cash has shown his quality in the final third this term – grabbing three goals and four assists.
Two of his goals this term have come against the Baggies and, in a Q&A with The Athletic, the Englishman revealed the second was his favourite goal for the Reds.
He explained: “West Brom away (is my favourite goal). In the last minute. I seem to like scoring against West Brom.
“I don’t know why that is. But I’ll be happy if that record continues, having scored against them on the opening day as well. But that goal late on was pretty special, in what felt like a big game for us.”
Cash’s late equaliser was a superb strike and a fitting conclusion to an exciting clash that was a fantastic advert for Championship football.
The two promotion hopefuls traded blows at the Hawthorns with some controversial refereeing decisions only adding to the drama.
Forest are fifth in the Championship as things stand and will undoubtedly be nervously awaiting a decision on if, how, and when the 2019/20 campaign will be concluded and what that means for their promotion hopes.

It’s easy to understand Cash’s decision here.
His fantastic strike ensured Sabri Lamouchi’s side came away with a result in a big game that was full of drama.
The 22-year-old has proven his quality this term and Forest will be hoping he can score a few more important goals over the next few years.
