Sean O'Driscoll thought Billy Sharp would win the game for Forest when he was presented with a late chance to finish off Blackburn.
The best chance of the match fell to Sharp, on loan from Southampton, after a superb pass from Chris Cohen sent him through on goal. His first touch was superb, but his second saw him fire into the side netting.
Having managed Sharp at Doncaster, it was a chance O'Driscoll had seen the striker take many times before.
"I have seen so many games where Billy Sharp has had one chance and has scored and we have come off with a win," said O'Driscoll following the goalless draw at the City Ground.
"When he gets up to speed, we will see that. But he has not played games. He has been sat on the bench and he needs those games. Sometimes players need a few games before they get their eye in.
"He apologised coming off the pitch. They are the kind of chances he thrives on. But somebody has to make that kind of run before you see chances like that - and he did that."
