Swansea City Vs. Nottingham Forest, 2011 nPower Championship Playoff Semifinal: Stephen Dobbie Goal Gives Swans Crippling Lead

Nottingham Forest have it all to do now, as Swansea City have scored their second goal in four minutes, going ahead 2-0 on the night and on aggregate. The away goals rule is not in play in the nPower Championship Playoffs, so two goals would merely get Forest into extra time, not give them the win. Jason Britton's stunning opener was a big enough blow to Forest, but Stephen Dobbie's great second has given Swansea an absolutely massive lead.

While the first was only partially the fault of the defense, with Britton deserving more credit than anyone deserved blame, the second goal absolutely should have been dealt with. Dobbie had three defenders ahead of him when he picked up the ball outside of the penalty area, but he somehow managed to beat all three of them as Luke Chambers and Wes Morgan let Dobbie run right throw them, then place a low shot into the back of the net.
