Big Match Review - Doncaster 1 Nottingham Forest 1

Doncaster Rovers 1-1 Nottingham Forest
Saturday October 2, Keepmoat Stadium, (Att: 10,759)

It was honours even at the Keepmoat Stadium as draw specialists Nottingham Forest had to settle for a point after being pegged back by Doncaster.

In an even encounter, Forest almost made the breakthrough when a Paul Anderson drive from distance came back off a post.

The visitors eventually took the lead just before the half hour mark when Donny failed to clear a corner and Dexter Blackstock had the time and space to crash a shot past Neil Sullivan.

It didn't take long for Rovers to get back on level terms though. Just five minutes later Adam Lockwood stole in at the back post to head home John Oster's inswinging free-kick.

Billy Davies's men responded, and Sullivan was twice tested by shots from Chris Cohen and Lewis McGugan.

Rovers improved after the break, and went close with a James Hayter header and a Martin Woods shot saved by Lee Camp.

Sean O'Driscoll's side then went close to winning it through the same pair, but Hayter's header from a Woods free kick was brilliantly saved by the legs of Camp.

The three points remained elusive, but a point maintained Doncaster's unbeaten home record, and stretched Forest's run without defeat to nine.
