Nottingham Forest dominate in the second half but end a home match with Blackburn Rovers in a disappointing 0-0 draw.

Nottingham Forest have been held at home by Blackburn Rovers in a frustrating goalless draw at the City Ground.

A quiet opening half was saw got its liveliest action through Lewis McGugan, who forced a good save from Paul Robinson with a fierce strike from distance.

Blackburn struggled to create chances for strike duo Jordan Rhodes and Nuno Gomes as Forest controlled possession for long spells in the second half.

Sean O'Driscoll's side came closest to breaking the deadlock through Billy Sharp, who spurned a great chance after some neat approach play from Andy Reid.

Forest introduced loan signing Jermaine Jenas on his return to the City Ground with 20 minutes to go.

Rovers caretaker boss Eric Black withdrew Rhodes in the closing stages and brought on David Dunn to shore up things in midfield.

Black's tactics did the trick to leave Forest frustrated with just a point from an impressive home performance.
