Ghanaian International Albert Adomah scored for Nottingham Forest on Friday as they beat English Premier League side Crystal Palace 1-0 in a pre-season friendly match.

The English Championship side started off the match in high spirit and pushed their opponent despite failing to find the back of the net in the early minutes.

After dominating for most parts of the first half, Forest finally found the breakthrough on the 32nd minute following some fine piece of football.

Attacker Joe Lolley chipped a fine pass over the top of the Palace defense for Lewis Grabban, who got a toe to the ball to flick it towards goal. Goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey rushed off his line and managed to pull off a good save.

Unfortunately, he could not hold on to the ball and allowed Albert Adomah to pounce and slot the ball into the back of the net to give his side the lead.

That goal proved to be the deciding factor of the match as Forest run away as 1-0 winners.

Later in the second half, the former Black Stars player was replaced by compatriot Arvin Appiah.

Adomah recently joined Nottingham Forest on a two-year-deal after helping Aston Villa to gain promotion into the top-flight league.
