Nottingham Forest have given themselves a chance of avoiding the drop following a 2-0 win over in-form Preston.

It was the visitors who had the better of the contest, but Kris Commons inspired a late success for Gary Megson's side.

With 77 minutes on the clock Commons turned a couple of defenders before crossing the perfect ball for substitute Paul Evans to head home.

Not content with breaking the deadlock, Commons then settled the contest with a superb strike - chipping Chris Day from some way out.

With Coventry losing at home to Wigan, Forest are now just six points away from pulling out of the drop zone.
