Match Preview

Mowbray facing defensive headache Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray is facing a fresh defensive crisis ahead of the npower Championship clash with Nottingham Forest. With Matthew Bates already sidelined by a torn hamstring, loan signing Andrew Davies has been ruled out with a hamstring strain and Seb Hines is struggling with a dead leg. If Hines makes it, he is likely to be partnered by Jonathan Grounds or German newcomer Maximilian Haas, who made his debut as a substitute during Saturday's 3-0 home defeat by leaders QPR, while the pair could link up if he does not. Jonathan Franks is likely to miss out after turning an ankle and, while Willo Flood (dislocated kneecap), Rhys Williams (pelvis)and Mickael Tavares (fractured toe), are nearing returns, the game could come too soon for all three. In addition, Danny Coyne (hernia surgery), Justin Hoyte (hamstring), Stephen McManus and Luke Williams (both ankle ligaments) and Kevin Thomson (hairline fibula fracture) are all still out. Nottingham Forest have no new problems ahead of the trip. On-loan defender Paul Konchesky and forward Nathan Tyson are likely to remain sidelined after missing the goalless draw at Millwall on Saturday with hamstring and ankle injuries respectively. The long-term absences of Kelvin Wilson, Guy Moussi, Dexter Blackstock and Robbie Findley leave boss Billy Davies with limited options should he wish to make changes. Garath McCleary could be in line to start after impressing from the bench at The Den while fellow forwards Dele Adebola, Marcus Tudgay, Robert Earnshaw and Dele Adebola are also available for recalls. The game at the Riverside is Forest`s game in hand on their promotion rivals and victory would move Davies` side to within a point of second-placed Swansea.

Match Report

Last-gasp Adebola snatches point Dele Adebola bundled home a late equaliser as promotion-chasing Nottingham Forest extended their remarkable unbeaten run at Middlesbrough with a 1-1 draw. Forest looked set to suffer a first defeat on Teesside in 28 years when Scott McDonald fired the hosts ahead in the 51st minute. Goalkeeper Lee Camp pulled off a series of fine saves to keep the visitors in the game, however, and his efforts were rewarded in the 92nd minute as Adebola pounced on a loose ball to scramble the ball past Jason Steele from eight yards. Forest move up to fourth in the npower Championship table as a result and now sit three points behind second-placed Swansea. Boro, meanwhile, remain 20th and will wonder how they failed to convert a much-improved second-half display into three points. Jonathan Grounds replaced the injured Andrew Davies in the home side's defence, while Marvin Emnes dropped to the bench to accommodate the return of midfielder Barry Robson, who captained the side. Forest boss Billy Davies also made two changes, with Garath McCleary and Robert Earnshaw coming in for Paul Anderson and Radoslaw Majewski. Earnshaw saw an early effort fly wide before Middlesbrough tested Camp twice within the space of 30 seconds in the 10th minute. Julio Arca's powerful 20-yard strike was beaten away by the 26-year-old keeper, who then saved comfortably after Robson had tried his luck from a similar position. David McGoldrick forced Steele into action soon after and centre-half Luke Chambers volleyed over from Chris Cohen's free-kick as the visitors looked to settle into their stride. Clear-cut chances were in short supply as the half wore on, however, with both sides lacking a cutting edge in the final third. Forest were forced into a change in the 38th minute when left-back Joel Lynch picked up an injury and was replaced by Brendon Moloney. Middlesbrough's Andrew Taylor livened up proceedings moments later with a stinging drive from the edge of the box, but Camp reacted well to palm the ball behind for a corner. The highly-rated stopper made another fine save from Tony McMahon's curling free-kick early in the second half and also denied Leroy Lita from 12 yards. Yet Boro soon gained reward for their pressure as McDonald fired home his eighth goal of the season, the Australian finishing coolly at the back post after Arca had failed to connect cleanly with Robson's right-wing cross. McDonald almost added a second in the 64th minute following Lita's flick-on and Taylor stung the palms of Camp once again with another thunderous left-footed shot. Camp blocked a third effort from Taylor 11 minutes later, while Forest saw appeals for a penalty turned down when Arca blocked Chris Gunter's cross amid shouts for handball. Robson looked to have added a second for Boro in the closing stages, but his deflected effort clipped the outside of the post. Forest then snatched a somewhat fortuitous point as substitute Adebola, on for McGoldrick, levelled with seconds remaining.
