Alex Neil was forced to play Alan Borwne as an emergency right back with Rafferty continuing out of position on the opposite flank. Billy Bodin filled in as the emergency striker this time.
Preston were by far the better side in the first half. North End had the majority of the ball and pegged Forest back. There were a number of chances for the visitors but Forest managed to keep Preston at bay until just before half time.
A shot from outside the box wasn't cleared and the ball eventually found its way to Bodin who swivelled and fired home from close range. It was a deserved lead but very slender given Preston should have made more of their superiority.
Forest were always going to come out stronger in the second period and from the off they were more attacking. It looked like Preston were going to hold out until Adomah was played through with ten minutes remaining. Replays showed he might have been a touch offisde but Adomah continued through on goal and slotted past Rudd.
Preston will be satisfied with a point which sees them sit in seventh place with ten points from the opening month. Neil will look to build on this after the international break and hoep that some of his injury troubles clear up.
