Awoniyi’s moment came in the latter stages of the match, where he displayed impeccable control, deftly collecting a soaring cross before expertly offloading the ball to former Chelsea sensation, Hudson-Odoi.

The winger, fresh from leaving his 16-year Chelsea association, made an unforgettable debut at the City Ground by curling a sublime right-footed shot into the net, igniting the home crowd.

The stadium briefly held its breath as VAR reviewed a potential handball by Awoniyi, but the goal ultimately stood, sealing Forest’s hard-earned point.

Awoniyi exhibited exceptional composure, shrugging off Gudmundsson’s challenge before delivering the decisive pass.

Despite Burnley’s fleeting joy, with Hudson-Odoi’s equalizer erasing Amdouni’s first-half strike, they were denied a late lead when Foster’s goal was disallowed due to a handball by Berge in the build-up.

The frustration boiled over for Lyle Foster, who was shown a straight red card for a reckless swing at Yates in the dying moments.

Awoniyi continues to shine this season, boasting an impressive three goals and two assists in as many Premier League appearances.

Burnley, meanwhile, secured their first point of the season after returning to the top flight.

Moving ahead, Steve Cooper’s men, sitting eighth in the table with seven points will face a huge task of visiting Manchester City, while Kompany’s Burnley will confront struggling Manchester United.

Both teams brace themselves for challenging clashes against Manchester’s elite in the next round of league fixtures.
