Full Time: PNE 1-1 Nottingham Forest

Both goals came in the first half of the game in what was a close encounter throughout.

Lewis Grabban converted an early spot kick, sending Rudd the wrong way.

Jayden Stockley leveled things up before the break, turning home a low Brad Potts cross at the near post. 

Barkhuizen’s long throw is headed out to Gallagher whose volley is deflected off the back of Ledson and just over. 

We’re into four added minutes at Deepdale. 

Barkhuizen shot blocked

Harrop and Barkhuizen exchange a one two down the channel and Barkhuizen takes it on and strikes towards goal but for an excellent block. 

Ameobi is replaced by Diakhaby. 

Gallagher’s initial kick is headed over at the near post and behind for another set piece. 

The ball falls to Bauer who blazes over on the turn.

Gallagher plays a long pass over the top for Maguire who gets on the end of it and his left footed strike is saved with Samba’s legs.

Johnson and Stockley make way for Paul Gallagher and Josh Harrop. 

Da Costa is replaced by Mighten. 

Forest having their spell

North End were the better side in the opening stages of the second half but having entered the final corner it is the Reds that are having more of a say.
