A Lewis McGugan penalty in the 97th minute ensured Nottingham Forest’s unbeaten run stretched to nine games on Monday with a 1-1 draw at Burnley, writes Shaun Wheatcroft.

In a first period that saw neat passing spells from both sides it was the two goalkeepers who were called into action to make some key saves, keeping the game level as the teams went into the break.

However, following the interval at Turf Moor, it was Burnley who took the lead courtesy of a deflected goal from Junior Stanislas - before a late surge from Forest ended with McGugan’s penalty, snatching a dramatic point for the Reds.
