How did the players rate at the City Ground?
Here are the North End player ratings from the 1-1 draw.
Not a huge amount for the PNE goalkeeper to do, parried a shot from Lolley shortly after the Forest equaliser. Steady as you go in the right-back slot, the Irishman stuck to his task well, playing out of position. Strong at the back, won most of his battles in the air and cleared up well. Also brought the ball out from the back a couple of times. Usual reliable display from the centre-half, helping to limit the threat of Grabban. He led the protests that Forests goal looked offside. Another game out of position at left-back but he looked comfortable enough and set the ball rolling for Bodins goal. Full of energy in the middle, played a big part in PNE bossing proceedings in the first half. Two Forest players were booked for fouls on him. Set up a good chance for Harrop just after the opening goal with a fine cross. Substituted in a double change after 65 minutes. Played on the right wing and still looks a touch short of full sharpness after an interrupted pre-season. Not quite as effective as in recent games but forced a save from the keeper in the first half and played his part in a fluid front four. Saw plenty of the ball in the first half especially and looked a real threat coming in off the left. His form is certainly picking up. Spearheaded the attack and did it well. Gave PNE the lead with a good finish and showed good movement along the frontline. Replaced Bodin in order to offer the targetman option and relieve some pressure in the second half Came on with Stockley, replacing Gallagher to give the midfield more bite. Played the last few minutes and made a couple of runs down the left.
