Andy Reid inspired Nottingham Forest to a 3-0 win over QPR to seal their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Reid scored one and set up another as Forest put their disappointing league form behind them to see off fellow Championship rivals QPR.

Forest broke the deadlock on 24 minutes with Reid curling home a superb free kick after he himself had been fouled by Danny Shittu.

The visitors doubled their lead a minute later with Reid setting up Kris Commons for his first goal for the club.

QPR threw everything into attack in the second half but they never seriously tested Forest keeper Paul Gerrard.

Forest made the game safe eight minutes from time with on-loan Southampton midfielder Yoann Folly marking his debut with a goal.

Folly lashed a brilliant shot past Chris Day after Reid had laid a free kick into the Frenchman's path.

Forest had further chances to add to their lead with Gareth Taylor and Reid both going close.
