Nottingham Forest lead Blackburn Rovers 1-0 at half time thanks to Matty Fryatt's 37th-minute strike.

Nottingham Forest are on course for their first win in seven matches as they lead Blackburn Rovers 1-0 at half time.

Ryan Tunnicliffe was busy in the opening stages and dragged a shot wide from 20 yards in the fourth minute.

Following Tunnicliffe's poor strike, the game entered a lull with neither side able to create any clear openings for a while.

Ben Marshall attempted to spark proceedings into life with a driving run, but after beating two players his strike hit a defender and looped behind for corner.

Forest began to forge chances of their own in the latter stages of the half, with Britt Assombalonga seeing his shot blocked.

His strike partner Matty Fryatt then saw his effort charged down and Michail Antonio blazed the follow-up over the bar as it looked as though the half was going to end goalless.

However, in the 37th minute Fryatt turned the ball home after Assombalonga's long-range effort had cannoned back off the post.
