Nottingham Forest v Sheffield United

Nott'm Forest 1-1 Sheff Utd

Nott'm Forest   1 - 1   Sheff Utd

Nottingham Forest captain Paul McKenna rescued a point as they came from behind to draw with Sheffield United.

The Blades went ahead after six minutes when Richard Cresswell headed in Stephen Jordan's inswinging free-kick.

Daniel Bogdanovic fired at Lee Camp, who then had to react well to finger-tip over Mark Yeates's curling effort.

Forest improved after the break and, after Wes Morgan headed wide, McKenna's 25-yarder proved too hot for Steve Simonsen as it finished all square.

Simonsen almost handed Forest a second goal in the 79th minute when he dropped a cross at the feet of Lewis McGugan, but the in-form midfielder's shot was blocked.

Forest saw late appeals for a penalty waved away when Dexter Blackstock tumbled under a challenge from Johnny Ertl and, despite six minutes of injury time, the Reds could not find a way through.

Billy Davies' side, who have now drawn six of their nine games this season, extended their fine run at the City Ground to just one defeat in 26 games.

Gary Speed's Blades suffered an injury blow late on when Arsenal loanee Kyle Bartley was carried off with a fractured cheekbone following an aerial collision with Dele Adebola.


Sheffield United boss Gary Speed:

"It's a fractured cheekbone. We knew that straight away. You could see it was depressed - I saw from where I was. I've done it myself.

"Hopefully he will be back as soon as possible. Usually, if there are no complications, it's six to eight weeks, but it depends how bad it is.

"It was a clash of heads. I know Dele. He's not that type. It was a bit late, Kyle got there first, but it was certainly an accident. Dele is a big unit, so it's unfortunate."
