Callum Hudson-Odoi’s wonderful debut goal earned Nottingham Forest a point against 10-player Burnley at the City Ground on Monday Night Football.

Having fallen behind to Zeki Amdouni’s sublime strike four minutes before half-time, Forest’s Deadline Day signing from Chelsea scored his first Premier League goal since October 2021 in spectacular fashion (61) to deny Burnley their first win of the season.

An eventful end-to-end contest throughout, both sides threatened to take all three points but it was Vincent Kompany’s team who will feel aggrieved not to have scored the winner when Lyle Foster, who was later sent off in stoppage time for a separate incident, saw an effort controversially disallowed for a handball in the build-up following a VAR review.

The result will go down as an opportunity missed for Burnley but after three consecutive home defeats against Manchester City, Aston Villa and Tottenham, the draw gets last season’s Championship winners off the mark this term. They stay 19th in the Premier League table, while Forest rise to eighth.
