Stoke City v Nottingham Forest report and reaction – Reds earn a point with fightback after first goal nightmare

Nottingham Forest extended their unbeaten run to four games as they came from behind to draw 1-1 at Stoke City.

In a game of two halves, the visitors were much improved after the break, and could even have snatched all three points.

They had fallen behind in truly calamitous fashion with 18 minutes gone, as another individual mistake once again proved costly

Brice Samba conceded a corner when he denied Sam Vokes from inside the box, but what followed was almost a comedy of errors.

Lewis Grabban failed to head the flag-kick clear at the near post, and the ball cannoned in off the shin of the Reds goalkeeper for a disastrous own goal.

It summed up a year to forget for Forest. And they rarely looked like clawing their way back into the game before the interval.

Cyrus Christie put in plenty of crosses, winning a number of corners, but Chris Hughton’s side failed to make the most of them.

Joe Worrall came close to turning one home, but that was about as good as it got for the Reds.

As the fog started to roll in in the second half, Christie almost summoned a response out of nothing, with his effort from range whistling narrowly wide of the far post.

Then, in the 65th minute, the visitors were level.

An Anthony Knockaert cross was headed into his own net by James Chester, under pressure from Worrall to make it 1-1.

It was Forest who pushed for a winner in the closing stages, with Joe Lolley firing over from a terrific Lyle Taylor cross.

But it was Cafu who really should have put them ahead right at the death, when put clean through following a sloppy back-pass. He fired straight at Joe Bursik, though, and it finished honours even at the bet365 Stadium.
