Order by Manager Name | Order by Manager Dates | Order by First Goal

Joe Kinnear took only three minutes to see his first goal as Forest boss. Andy Impey scored the first goal in just 90 seconds in a 3-3 draw at home to Walsall.

Mark Warburton took only 5 minutes and Sabri Lamouchi only 9 before their first goals.

No manager went longer than 4 games (Matt Gillies holds the record for the longest time before a goal)

These are the times that each manager saw their first goal in.
(Note: There are a lot of early goals that don't have a time for them, so these have been listed as being on 90 minutes).
