Half-Time Report: Gary Gardner scores to bring Nottingham Forest level against Middlesbrough

Grant Leadbitter and Gary Gardner score as Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough enter half time at 1-1.

Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough are level at half time, after a fine Gary Gardner goal cancelled out Grant Leadbitter's opener.

Forest had the first chances of the game, as Michail Antonio went close with a deflected shot and Jamaal Lascelles headed over a corner from six yards out.

Middlesbrough struggled to create any early opportunities, but long-range efforts from Lee Tomlin and Patrick Bamford showed how dangerous they can be.

Minutes after Bamford's shot, the visitors took the lead as Leadbitter's in-swinging cross went all the way in at the back post.

Forest equalised shortly after, as Gardner curled a 25-yard strike into the top corner, minutes after he missed a simple header from a Chris Burke cross.

Leadbitter went close again for the visitors, but neither side could find a crucial second in an even game.
