Scunthorpe   2 - 2   Nott'm Forest

Scunthorpe 2-2 Nottm Forest

Scunthorpe 2-2 Nottm Forest

Garry Thompson struck a late equaliser for Scunthorpe as Forest warmed up for a play-off semi-final against Blackpool by throwing away a two-goal lead.

Thompson rifled in a 25-yard shot that went in off the underside of the bar to earn an unlikely point.

Forest had earlier produced a fine first-half display and surged into the lead through Joe Garner's cool finish and a glorious George Boyd goal.

But Scunthorpe rallied with Niall Canavan's close-range finish.


Scunthorpe boss Nigel Adkins on the club's hopes of keeping their star players:
"We need to reward them. They have achieved in the Championship," he said after a 2-2 draw with Forest.

"There are clubs out there who can give them greater rewards but I know the club has done all it can.

"The lads have done the business and they have to do right by themselves. If they leave, they will leave as heroes."

Nottingham Forest assistant manager David Kelly on facing Blackpool in the play-offs:
"We'll go into those games as well prepared as we possibly can be.

"Blackpool have beaten us twice and they are a good team. It'll be a tough game but hopefully we'll have a bit of luck and get to Wembley."
