Bily Davies again showed the depth of options available to him by making 11 changes from the midweek cup win against Millwall and was rewarded with an early lead as Andy Reid fired Forest in front.
Shaun Maloney hit back straight away for the hosts, however, when he scored from the penalty spot and Gomez gave the Latics a half-time lead when striking on 35 minutes.
That was the way the game stayed as Forest fell to fourth in the table going into the international break.
More to come on Footy Mad.
