Cracking derby at the Riverside, though Wee Gordon Strachan won’t have enjoyed it quite as much as I did.

Andy Carroll’s 82nd-minute equaliser earned a point for Newcastle, but with West Brom beating Blackpool, the Toon’s lead at the top of the Championship is down to just four points – at least Forest lost, eh.

Peter Lovenkrands scored the opener – against the run of play – then Barry Robson equalised with a brilliant strike from 20 yards out. Scott McDonald put the hosts ahead midway through the second half, before Carroll’s assured finish made it 2-2.
