The Run Goes On: 'Boro 1-1 Forest

More than 3,000 Forest fans travelled to the Riverside Stadium today, to roar the Reds' onto a more than credible draw against one of the pre season favourites for promotion.

Forest will come away feeling satisfied with the point they earned in the 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough and more than satisfied to see the unbeaten run now stretch to 9 games.

Billy Boy made just the one change that drew with Brizzle a couple of weeks ago, with young Maj dropping to the bench. Fit again and top scorer Dexter Blackstock, had to also settle for a place on the bench, with Adebola partnering McGoldrick upfront.

It wasn't the start the travelling faithful had hoped for, with Leroy Lita giving the home side the lead after only 5 mins. Adam Johnson was always going to be our tormentor and he started early. It was his pass that started the move that brought the goal, when he picked out Arca. Although his shot was saved by Lee Camp, Lita was on hand to pick up the rebound and tap the ball home. From then on the first half became a scrappy affair, with neither side having too many chances.

Guy Moussi had a decent effort saved by Brad Jones and McGoldrick might have done better, when he was faced with a one on one with the keeper. Unfortunately for the Reds' striker, his effort was once again well saved by Jones.

The second half saw the tempo rise and it was Forest who were posing the early threat. Garner thought he'd won a penalty, when his shot hit a 'Boro defenders hand, but referee Probert saw nothing wrong and waved play on. Adebola had a header saved and Garner put a shot just wide of the post. Forest couldn't get the equaliser though and the home side were still dangerous on the break.

After 58 mins, on came Robert Earnshaw to rapturous applause from the travelling fans. On the 73rd min, he won a free kick and hit a well struck shot, that left Jones with no chance in the Boro goal. The Reds' were level and deservedly so.

Blackstock came on for the final 10 mins, as the lads went in search of the win. Although it wasn't to come, they battled in vein and will take yet more heart from what is turning into a very enjoyable season for a change. 'Boro though, are finding it tough going in the Championship and just like we did a good few years ago, are finding out that former Premiership sides have no divine right to get out of this League.
