Lockwood strike saves Rovers

Last updated : 02 October 2010

Adam Lockwood's first goal in 13 months rescued a point from a 1-1 draw for Doncaster as Nottingham Forest extended their unbeaten run to nine matches.

The game burst to life midway through the first half when Dexter Blackstock gave Forest the lead. Paul McKenna's corner went to the far post where it was nodded down by Paul Anderson and Blackstock blasted home from point-blank range for his fourth goal of the season. The lead lasted just five minutes, though, as Rovers grabbed a quick equaliser. Chris Gunter fouled James Hayter down the left and John Oster whipped in the free-kick quickly, with Lockwood given the space at the far post to beat Camp with a header.

Doncaster looked the most likely to grab a winner but were denied by Camp and then the crossbar, from Mark Wilson, during the closing stages.
