SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY maintained their play-off push with a fourth consecutive Sky Bet Championship victory as Nottingham Forest were beaten 2-1 at the City Ground.

This was Wednesday’s fifth consecutive win over Forest, who paid the price for missed chances as goals from Almen Abdi and Fernando Forestieri either side of half-time put the visitors into a 2-0 lead.

Ross McCormack had failed to net from the spot when the score was still 0-0 and, despite Ben Osborn pulling one back for the Reds with half an hour still to play, the home side only rarely threatened for an equaliser.
