Morgan Gibbs-White set up a goal and scored another to help Nottingham Forest push away from the relegation zone with a 3-1 victory over Fulham in the Premier League on Tuesday.

Forest snapped a five-game winless run with a first-half onslaught that prompted Fulham manager Marco Silva to make a triple substitution just past the half-hour mark.

Callum Hudson-Odoi collected Gibbs-White's long through ball and scored in the ninth minute at the City Ground. Chris Wood doubled the lead 10 minutes later with a strike from distance with goalkeeper Bernd Leno playing just outside his 6-yard box.

Looking for a spark, Silva sent on Willian for Harry Wilson; Tom Cairney for Sasa Lukic; and Adama Traoré for Alex Iwobi.

But it was Gibbs-White who struck next, taking a pass from Danilo and beating Leno with a shot to the far right corner in first-half stoppage time.

Tosin Adarabioyo got Fulham on the board four minutes after the break with a header off a corner.
