Callum Hudson-Odoi scored a glorious equalizer on his Nottingham Forest debut to earn a Premier League draw against Burnley.
The Clarets appeared to be in control of the match, but deadline-day signing Hudson-Odoi had other ideas, curling a superb strike into the top corner on the hour mark.
Burnley had taken the lead in the first half thanks to a well-directed shot from Zeki Amdouni into the bottom corner after excellent work from lively teenager Luca Koleosho.
Swiss striker Amdouni, who scored the winner here in the Carabao Cup just 20 days ago, had already given goalkeeper Matt Turner a warning sign with a stinging strike from distance before scoring a cool goal.
Vincent Kompany’s visitors thought they had scored 12 minutes from time when Lyle Foster volleyed in from close range, but the shot was ruled out due to a Sander Berge handball in the build-up.
Burnley’s evening then ended on a sour note when top scorer Foster was sent off for violent conduct in injury time, after an unnecessary elbow on Ryan Yates.
After three consecutive defeats, the result allows Burnley to take the lead this season, while Forest have made a decent start to the campaign with seven points from five games.
