Bristol City   1 - 1   Nottm Forest

Bristol City v Nottm Forest

Bristol City 1-1 Nottm Forest

Nottingham Forest's hopes of automatic promotion appear to be over after they were held to a draw by Bristol City.

They now trail second-placed West Brom by 11 points with five games remaining.

City went ahead after just two minutes as Liam Fontaine's shot deflected in but Guy Moussi levelled with a fierce shot into the top right-hand corner.

Striker Stefan Maierhofer played the last few minutes in goal for City after an injury to keeper Dean Gerken when all their substitutions had been made.

Keith Millen has now won two and drawn two games of his four-match reign since Gary Johnson's departure, but for Forest, their season now appears to be resigned to the drama of the play-offs.

After Fontaine's effort from the edge of the area found its way into the bottom corner, Forest midfielder George Boyd had a fine opportunity with a header 12 yards out but failed to test Gerken.

Moussi put them back on level terms however, as he was afforded too much space and capitalised superbly with a thunderous strike.

The home side responded and Nicky Maynard drove a shot just wide before Lee Camp made a fine save to tip Fontaine's overhead kick over the bar.

George Boyd, still looking to open his account for Forest, shot straight at Gerken, and less than a minute later Danny Haynes' right-footed strike came back off the post.

Nathan Tyson was then denied by the alert Gerken just a minute after coming on, Chris Cohen lashing the follow-up wide.

Gerken made another save to keep out Joe Garner's header but was stretchered off with a serious-looking injury, although the 10-men stood firm.


Bristol City caretaker boss Keith Millen:

"When you lose your keeper late on in a game that is close, it is always worrying.

"I didn't have a plan for putting someone in goal after using our substitutes, so it was a case of waiting to see who wanted to do the job.

"We protected Stefan well, and I thought we deserved a point from what was a pretty even game in which both sides created chances."

Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies:

"It was a great point for us against a team who have done really well since Keith Millen took charge, and I thought we edged it on chances.

"While we face a huge task to catch the top two, I am delighted that we are even challenging the likes of Newcastle and West Bromwich Albion.

"If we can cement a play-off place, it will be a terrific achievement."
