    FT: Forest 1-1 Derby

    So a point apiece sees Derby move up a place to 21st, just one behind Forest who stay 20th.

    Lyle Taylor

    Honours even.

    A goal in either half in this one as Derby took the lead in spectacular style with Martyn Waghorn's free-kick before Lyle Taylor levelled for Forest with a close range finish.

    Derby had another ruled out for offside but both sides will feel they had a chance to win that one.

    Forest 1-1 Derby

    David Marshall punches that corner clear and then Harry Arter is booked in the aftermath for a foul.

    Forest corner as we move into the last 30 seconds...

  9. Post update

    Forest 1-1 Derby

    Anthony Knockaert tries to swing in another cross on his left from the right wing, but David Marshall confidently gathers in the air.

    We will have a minimum of three minutes' added time at the end of this match.

  11. Post update

    Forest 1-1 Derby

    Andre Wisdom involved at the other end now and he fizzes across a dangerous ball low from the right near the byline that Brice Samba has to be alert to gather in the Forest goal.

    Colin Kazim-Richards was there sniffing about in case he spilled it.

  12. Post update

    Forest 1-1 Derby

    Painful-looking times here for Sammy Ameobi who goes to ground clutching his right foot after an aerial challenge with Andre Wisdom.

    Seems to be OK to continue for the closing stages though.


    Forest 1-1 Derby

    Late double change for Derby.

    Louie Sibley is on for Tom Lawrence and Martyn Waghorn makes way for Colin Kazim-Richards (yes him!).

  14. Post update

    Forest 1-1 Derby

    Ambitious effort from range by Lee Buchanan takes a deflection off a Forest player on its way to goal and gets the visitors another corner.

    Tom Lawrence again hangs it to the back post but a Derby player can't meet it cleanly with their head.

  15. Post update

    Forest 1-1 Derby

    Lee Buchanan sprints forward down the left for Derby and eventually wins a free-kick just outside the penalty box.

    Tom Lawrence with the inswinging delivery but some full-stretch Forest bodies block its progress.

  16. Post update

    Forest 1-1 Derby

    Been a slow burner to begin with this one, but it's built brilliantly into a very watchable game in this second half.

    Still time for a legitimate winner?

  17. Post update

    Forest 1-1 Derby

    Referee chat

    So Martyn Waghorn going from hero to villain almost for Derby as his lack of positional awareness costs them that goal.

    Into the last 10 minutes. Forest with another corner that for a moment causes panic in the Derby box until Graeme Shinnie clears their lines.


    Forest 1-1 Derby

    Well now! Derby think they're back ahead here, but it's ruled out.

    Kamil Jozwiak with a lovely finish sweeping it home low on his left to the bottom right corner and he peels away to celebrate.

    But, that celebration is short-lived as the flag is up against Martyn Waghorn who is right in the line of the goalkeeper's sight there as the ball was struck home.


    Forest 1-1 Derby

    And here indeed comes Duane Holmes for Derby.

    Nathan Byrne is the man making way in their first change of the night.

  20. Post update

    Forest 1-1 Derby

    Tom Lawrence hangs another Derby corner right into the danger area around the six-yard box.

    Ryan Yates rises highest once more to head it clear for Forest.

    Pressure moments.
