Frank Onyeka registered an assist for Brentford in the 2-1 win against Nottingham Forest, in their Premier League clash on Saturday.
Onyeka set up one goal as Brentford produced a stunning comeback to beat Nottingham Forest who themselves paraded another Nigerian, Taiwo Awoniyi.
Brazilian midfielder Danilo gave Forest the lead just before half-time, reacting quickest to bundle home Morgan Gibbs-White’s shot which deflected into his path.
Brentford playing at home struggled to find equalizer and coach Thomas Frank decided to bring Onyeka for the final 19 minutes of the game.
The change worked magic as Brentford had more bodies to do the running in the midfield.
Ivan Toney scored a free kick with five minutes left in regular time, to make it 1-1.
Brentford snatched the maximum points in the final minute of added time when Frank Onyeka set up fellow substitute Josh Dasilva for the winner which was only confirmed after a long VAR check.
It was Onyeka’s second Premier League assist in 17 matches for the Bees.
The win further boosts Brentford’s chances of playing in Europe next season, while Forest’s survival hopes were dealt a significant blow.
