The Vets stayed top of their division with a 6-3 victory over Old Minchendinians at Wadham Lodge. Ferhat Erdogan broke the deadlock on 9 minutes when he beat the offside trap to slot the ball past Gary Rondell in the visitor’s goal. However their lead was short-lived and a defensive mix up saw Old Minchendinians level on 20 minutes. The game swung from end-to-end, but Forest were awarded a penalty when Rondell was judged to have fouled Erdal Beklar on 37 minutes, and skipper Adem Carigen fired home the spot kick.
3 minutes later Beklar added a 3rd Forest goal with a fierce drive from the edge of the penalty area.
Old Minchendinians reduced the arrears on 53 minutes, but Forest responded Erdogen scored twice in 3 minutes on 54 and 56 minutes. The visitors reduced the arrears on 89 minutes, but Erdogen rounded off the scoring with his 4th goal in the last minute.
