Struggling Blackburn Rovers sealed a valuable victory thanks to a first-half Sam Gallagher brace against 10-man Nottingham Forest.
Gallagher put them ahead early on when he coolly slotted home past Forest keeper Vladimir Stojković.
Gallagher doubled his tally before the break from close range after Corry Evans laid the ball to him.
Damien Perquis slotted home a late consolation before Hildeberto Pereira was sent off for a second yellow card.
Stojkovic came up for a free-kick in the hopes of a equaliser, but Craig Conway pounced on the counter-attack and was brought down by Pereira who picked up a second booking.
The result meant Blackburn lifted themselves out of the Championship relegation places as they moved from 23rd to 21st.
Meanwhile, Forest slipped a place to 16th and have won just once in their last eight league matches.
