Tammy Abraham scored four goals for Aston Villa in the dramatic 5-5 championship against Nottingham Forest, who finished the game with 10 men.
Forest, however, earned a point from a 10-goal thriller to take in the top six after a spectacular display of attacking football. On their loans, Schumma was always on the front leg and set the tone of the game with goals from Luis Graban and Jose Carvalho in the first six minutes. Villa was equally decisive with Abraham scoring twice in three minutes to level the score in just 14 minutes.
With both captured captives asleep, Matt Cash has once again received a 22-minute lead for Schum only for Abraham to fire the 36-minute penalty to complete his hat-trick.
The goal of the game came in the 51st minute of Joe Lolley with a 35-yard strike that spectacularly whistled across the net. Schum could not maintain its advantage, as Abraham wins fourth place in 71 minutes before replacing Anwar El Gazi won the fifth goal for Villa, which was subsequently cleared by Grabban for eight minutes.
A high-flying forest quickly showed their confidence at an incredible start when they shocked Villa with two goals in the first six minutes. There was no indication of such a catastrophic magic, as John McGinn produced a remarkable cross from the right-hand side that was just missed by Jonathan Kogaya.
Nevertheless, Villa's insight to gain supremacy, however, was dramatic. Loli, a fan of Villa, wisely created the opening with a low cross on the right to expose weaknesses in home defense as unmarked Grabban was on hand to score a goal with just three minutes to score his 11th goal in the season.
Before Villa had time to recover from this failure, they found themselves even deeper in trouble, as Loli's small shift again opened the defense of the opposition with a precise passage leading to Carvalho to notice another easy goal. This was certainly a wake-up call for Villa, because they had to repair the damage quickly and they reacted in disastrous style.
The defense of the forest suddenly emerged. Janik Bolasi created right wing wings to Villa, Abraham, who managed to defeat Kostel Pantilimon in the 11th minute. Increased from this goal, Villa took the game in the woods, and McGean's strike was blocked, but guests failed to clear their lines and Abraham was on hand to score a goal from close.
The trust of the forest was never in doubt, as they repeatedly downloaded the game at Villa and they were rewarded with a third goal when James Chester was guilty of allowing Cash to use the defender's fault to be able to hit Oryan Nylland.
But in this fierce game Villa continued to thrill his fans when Abraham completed the hat-trick in the 36th minute when he came home with a penalty after Bolisi was shot down by Jack Robinson.
"The Forest" will not be denied and, after surviving the tumultuous five minutes early in the second half, their star performed Lolley scoring another spectacular goal with a whistle blow of 35 meters which left the Nyland transfer.
In the 68th minute, Tobias Figueiredo of Schum was sent for a foul on McGin. Then, out of the free kick of Jack Grillish, Abraham celebrated one night to remember when he came home his fourth goal in the unforgettable match.
El Gazi won Villa's fifth victory in the 75th minute, but Grabban had the last word with a 82-minute equalizer from a narrow angle.
