Doncaster Rovers v Notts Forest

Doncaster 1-1 Notts Forest

Doncaster   1 - 1   Nott'm Forest

Nottingham Forest extended their unbeaten run to nine matches with a hard-fought 1-1 draw at Doncaster.

Dexter Blackstock's first half strike for Forest, his fourth of the season, put the visitors ahead.

But their lead lasted just five minutes, with Adam Lockwood scoring his first goal in 13 months.

Doncaster looked most likely to snatch all three points but were denied by the crossbar and then Forest keeper Lee Camp in a frantic finish to the game.

Doncaster made a bright start, but it was the visitors that created the first decent opening in the 25th minute when Neil Sullivan produced a superb low save to keep out Lewis McGugan's shot, which looked destined for the bottom corner after a well-worked corner.

Forest forced another corner three minutes later and this time they made it count. McKenna's set-piece went to the far post where it was nodded down by Paul Anderson and Blackstock blasted home from point-blank range.

The lead lasted just five minutes, though, as Rovers grabbed a quick equaliser. Chris Gunter fouled Hayter down the left and Oster whipped in the free-kick quickly, with Lockwood given the space at the far post to beat Camp with a header for his first goal since scoring against Cardiff in August 2009.

Chances were few and far between in the second half, but Sullivan was called into action on a number of occasions and had to produce a superb save with his legs to keep out Hayter's header from a Woods free-kick.

The home side went even closer in the 86th minute as the battling Hayter teed up substitute Mark Wilson but his volley crashed back off the crossbar - and Sharp then wasted a glorious chance with the last action of the match as he headed wide from James O'Connor's cross.
