Blackburn Rovers maintained their unbeaten home start to the season with a tough draw against a resolute Nottingham Forest team.
Forest had an early chance to take the lead with a penalty, however Lewis Grabban managed to hit the bar on this occasion.
Forest did however get their noses in front with some nice counter attacking football and Grabban made amense and put the ball in the back of the net.
Rovers however dug their heels in and Adam Armstrong managed to squeeze the ball into the net with a cross/shot that beat the Forest keeper. Next up Danny Graham and Bradley Dack linked up again for Dack to tap home Rovers second.
We looked good after that, however Forest were awarded a soft penalty which Grabban this time scored to give them a share of the points.
