Substitute Idrissa Sylla’s late goal helped QPR snatch a point from a 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest.

Britt Assombalonga had put the home side ahead in the 38th minute with an angled finish, four minutes after QPR had been reduced to 10 men when Karl Henry collected his second booking of the game.

But Forest also had a man sent off in the 71st minute when Hildeberto Pereira collected his second yellow card - and the home side’s resistance was broken in the 86th, when Sylla headed home at the near post.

oth Forest boss Philippe Montanier and QPR manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink had gone into the game desperate for a win to end speculation over their respective futures - and neither man will have been entirely happy with a point.
