Nottingham Forest remain deep in relegation trouble after being held to a 1-1 draw by Crewe at Gresty Road.

Gary Megson's side missed the chance to make up ground on their rivals at the foot of the table as they let slip a 1-0 lead, extending their winless run to four matches.

Crewe have now gone 14 games without a win but Neil Sorvel's goal, which cancelled out Scott Dobie's opener, keeps them in 16th place, albeit only three points clear of the drop zone.

Forest dominated the opening period and led at the break thanks to Dobie's 25-yarder, which squirmed through the fingers of Alex keeper Ben Williams and into the bottom corner.

Paul Gerrard had beaten away David Vaughan's early shot to keep Forest level, before they eventually took control of the proceedings.

David Friio shot off target when he should have done better and Kris Commons saw a shot blocked on the line by Chris McCready before Dobie finally made the breakthrough that their greater possession merited.

Yet the visitors began to sit back after the interval and after Gerrard got away with fumbling Vaughan's volley, Sorvel headed in a cross from Adie Moses to level it up.

Steve Jones was then denied by Gerrard and Gareth Taylor's deflected shot trickled wide as both sides searched in vain for a winner.
