ANDY REID inspired a second-half comeback for Nottingham Forest as they recovered from 2-0 down to overcome struggling Watford and maintain their push for the play-offs.

Watford took the lead through Gabriele Angella's superb near-post flick and the centre-back doubled their advantage two minutes after the break.

However, Billy Davies' team hit back when Simon Cox pulled one back just before the hour before Reid came into his own.

The midfielder provided a sublime cross with the outside of his right foot for Darius Henderson to equalise before another Reid cross – his 10th assist of the season – set up Greg Halford to head Forest in front.

Cox rounded off the victory with his second goal in injury-time.
