Billy Davies took the disappointment of a 90th-minute Bristol City equaliser somewhat in his stride as his Nottingham Forest side stretched their unbeaten run to eight games

Wes Morgan had given Forest an 85th-minute lead with his first goal of the season but in the final minute of normal time, Danny Haynes pounced for an equaliser to ensure the Robins left with a share of the spoils.

"I always thought it would be a tight game, maybe decided by one goal, so I was disappointed that we conceded so late in the game having taken the lead," Davies admitted. "It was a soft goal to concede because our two central defenders had been excellent up until that point but we were beaten to the ball in the air and then caught ball watching."

He added: "I'm not complaining because we got a draw at Cardiff last weekend with a last-minute goal but it was a pity that we switched off.

"I've told the players that although we lost two points at the end it could prove to be a crucial point by the end of the season. The draw keeps us moving forward and maintains our unbeaten home run but I know there's still a lot of hard work to be done here."
