Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies refuted the suggestion that his team's goalless home draw against Doncaster represented two points dropped.

Chris Cohen and Garath McCleary missed good chances as Forest's winless run was extended to six games, but Davies remained positive after the game.

He said: "Psychologically it was a great point to take us to 60 and at the end of the season it could prove very important to us."

He added: "We are mentally and physically tired and bringing people back from injury but the players have put in a great effort. We have one more match before the international break and the freshness that we should get from that will do us the world of good.

"We had lots of possession and lots of chances but our final ball was poor at times and that let us down.

"What we need at the moment is a bit of break and a goal to ricochet in off somebody's backside."

Doncaster boss Sean O'Driscoll revealed he and his team took advantage of watching how Hull ended Forest's 36-match unbeaten home record seven days earlier.

He said: "We watched the video of the game and got a few ideas from the way Hull went about their business in beating Forest 1-0 here a week ago.

"We asked the question of whether or not they were lucky and they weren't, so we looked at the way they were set up and asked ourselves whether we could do the same.

"We didn't quite get the result they did but we've got a point and we engineered the kind of openings that could have led to us getting a goal."
