Jack Colback hit a dramatic equalizer late in the game as Nottingham Forest held QPR to a 1-1 draw at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Friday night.

A hotly contested encounter seemed to have been settled in added time in the first half, when former Forest winger Albert Adomah picked Lyndon Dykes, who came home unmarked (45.5).

But the visitors had other ideas as they chased a fifth straight away win and managed to score a point on the board when Colback’s strike deflected and tucked in the net (90-1) .

Regardless of the points lost, the Rangers advance to the playoffs ahead of the rest of the weekend’s action, while Steve Cooper’s Forest climbs above his former club Swansea to place 15th.

For starters, it was Forest who seemed most likely. With 15 minutes remaining, Brennan Johnson was denied a penalty call when he fell under pressure from Yoann Barbet in the box and within moments Joe Lolley saw a plunging volley grabbed by Seny Dieng.

Soon after, Adomah and Djed Spence became entangled in the penalty area, but despite heated protests from the outside contingent, referee Andy Davies chose not to rule in their favor.

While there was not much else to separate the teams in terms of chances in the first half, QPR suffered a severe blow in terms of personnel, with Sam McCallum and Jordy De Wijs coming out injured well before the break.

But if they could have paid the price, it was in the extra time added after the first 45 minutes that they got the advantage. Adomah – who made 24 league appearances for Forest between 2019 and 2020 – twisted and spun with the agility of a player much younger than 33 and lifted an inviting cross at the back post, where a Dykes unmarked was on hand to get home.

The teams traded half chances throughout the second half, with Dykes notably turning down a second thanks to a last-resort challenge from Spence. But Forest kept pushing and finally got his reward, when Colback grabbed a misplaced clearance and hit the back of the net via a deflection to earn his share of the booty.

Perhaps he had a point to prove against his former club, but Albert Adomah put in a high-quality performance on Friday night.

There was a little scare when he fell in the first two minutes, but he rebounded to play a key role in the opening goal, which nearly won all three points for QPR.

Nottingham Forest returns to service at 7.45pm on Tuesday 2 November, when they host Sheffield United at the City Ground, while QPR returns at 7.45pm the next day, when they travel to South Wales to face Cardiff. Both matches will be available to watch the Sky Sports Football Red Button.
