Nott'm Forest 0-0 Blackpool

Nottingham Forest and Blackpool boosted their prospects at opposite ends of the Championship table with a goalless draw at the City Ground.

The point keeps Blackpool fifth and eases Forest's relegation concerns, taking them seven points clear of the relegation zone.

Dexter Blackstock had the home side's best effort, drawing a superb save from Matt Gilks with a late header.

Lee Camp had to be equally alert to deny Thomas Ince at the other end.

Forest deserved to win - Cotterill

The result keeps the Tangerines in the top six, although they are now just two points ahead of seventh-placed Middesbrough, following the Teessiders' 1-0 win over Derby.

The game itself turned out to be a showcase of the talents of the opposing keepers.

Gilks made first-half saves to deny Paul Anderson, who was making his first appearance for six weeks, and then Joel Lynch and Blackstock shortly before the break.

And Camp responded with a save of his own to keep out an Ince header.

Radoslaw Majewski should have clinched the points for Forest but managed to shoot wide from 12 yards out.
