Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi started up front for Nottingham Forest, while his compatriot, Onyeka, came of the bench for Brentford.
In attack, Awoniyi worked hard, constantly probing at defenders and pressing for the ball, but with no goals to show, the Forward was subbed off In the 54th minute.
In the second half, Brentford made a spirited effort to tie the score, but Nottingham Forest held firm.
With 20 minutes left to play, the Bees manager Thomas Frank brought on Nigerian midfielder Frank Onyeka, and the move paid off.
Josh Dasilva was through on goal when Onyeka made a great ball to him, and the English midfielder powered a shot past Jesus Navas to turn the game around completely.
Brentford prevailed 2-1, at the final whistle, and the setback leaves the Tricky Trees in a precarious position because if any of Leicester City or Everton win their game, Forest will be faced with the possibility of relegation.
Meanwhile, Emmanuel Dennis, dressed up for the game, but did not see a single minute of action in his side’s defeat.
