Burnley's manager, Stan Ternent, said Gareth Taylor offered his apologies after scoring the 80th-minute goal that earned Nottingham Forest a 1-1 against his former employers at the City Ground last night. The draw left both under threat of relegation from the First Division.

The Welshman, reluctantly sold by Burnley, fired home a left-foot drive to cancel out Richard Chaplow's opener for his fourth goal in eight games since Joe Kinnear replaced Paul Hart as Forest's manager. Ternent said: "It would have to be Gareth Taylor wouldn't it? He came up to me at the end and said 'sorry gaffer' - but he's a good lad."

Two goals by Tommy Mooney kept Swindon Town well in the Second Division promotion hunt with a 2-0 home win over Grimsby Town, while Bournemouth are outside the play-off places only on goal difference are their two Fletchers, Carl and Steve, scored a goal each in a 2-0 win at Sheffield Wednesday.
