Burnley's Championship season continued with a draw at the City Ground against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

A late goal from Taylor was enough to rescue Burnley a point in a one-one draw at Nottingham Forest with the 10-men of Forest, following long-time Clarets target Lansbury's sending off, having taken the lead through Lichaj.

The first half was controlled by Burnley, who thought the deadlock had been broken when Gray was left with a simple tap in but his follow up to Barton's deflect effort, which had come back off the post to him, was disallowed with an offside flag raised.

Arfield, which would have counted, missed the best chance of the half when he wasn't able to hit the target from a Taylor cross as the opening 45-minutes ended goalless.

Forest went close to breaking the deadlock in the second half when Oliveira shot just wide but Burnley 'keeper was tested after this by Mendes with Heaton equal to this.

Heaton couldn't do anything when Forest did take the lead though, which came when defender Lichaj (73) cut in and fired home from 20-yards to mark his return to the Forest side, after suspension I think it was, with a goal.

Suspension is something Lansbury will now have to serve after a red card, for an apparent stamp on Mee?

Gray, fresh from his brace at the weekend, should have had his latest Burnley goal but from another Taylor assist he shot wide from just eight-yards with it looking like it would be a night of frustration for the Clarets....

That was until Taylor (90), a specialist when it comes to dead balls and long-range goals, rescued the deserved point for Burnley when he fired him from range at the death.

A draw will always be taken over a defeat, obviously, with this draw keeping the Clarets fifth in the table.
