Premier League clubs, players, managers and fans came together to give their respects to Her Majesty The Queen, with a minute's silence and a rendition of the National Anthem taking place before kick-off at The City Ground and Villa Park.

Forest's Taiwo Awoniyi scored the first goal of the evening but Fulham netted three times in six second-half minutes, through Tosin Adarabioyo, Joao Palhinha and Harrison Reed.
Lewis O'Brien set up a thrilling finale but Forest could not find an equaliser as they fell to a fourth straight loss and remain second from bottom.
