Aston Villa: Tammy Abraham hits four goals in thriller

One-time Super Eagles hopeful, Tammy Abraham, grabbed four goals for Aston Villa in a dramatic 5-5 Sky Bet Championship draw against 10-man Nottingham Forest.

Forest, though, deserved a point from the 10-goal thriller to take them into the top six after a spectacular display of attacking football.

To their credit Forest were always on the front foot and set the tone of the game with goals from Lewis Grabban and Jose Carvalho in the opening six minutes.

Villa were equally emphatic with Abraham scoring twice in three minutes to level the scoreline after only 14 minutes.

With both defences caught napping, Matt Cash regained a 22nd-minute lead for Forest only for Abraham to slot away a 36th-minute penalty to complete his hat-trick.

The goal of the game came in the 51st minute from Joe Lolley with a superb shot from 35 yards that spectacularly whistled into the net.

Forest could not retain their advantage as Abraham notched his fourth after 71 minutes before substitute Anwar El Ghazi grabbed a fifth goal for Villa, which was then cancelled out by Grabban eight minutes from time.
