Nicklas Bendtner scored a nice glancing header, too bad it was an own goal

Nicklas Bendtner was among the goals today.

The Nottingham Forest striker rose high to score a nice glancing header in the game against the club's bitter rivals Derby County.

It's just a shame it was at the wrong end.

Bendtner scored an unfortunate own-goal to give the home side the lead in the midlands' derby, and the Derby fans absolutely loved it.

Bendtner signed for Forest back in September on a free-transfer, after being without a club since Wolfsburg cancelled his contract last April.

He has scored two goals (at the right end) in 10 games so far, and has a long way to go to make sure his own goal against Derby isn't his most famous moment in a Forest shirt.
