Taiwo Awoniyi scored twice as Nottingham Forest claimed a valuable point against Chelsea in their fight against Premier League relegation in a match that came alive in the second half.

Raheem Sterling equalised after the break when he swept home Trevoh Chalobah’s cutback then seven minutes later the England winger turned inside Felipe before curling the ball beyond Keylor Navas.

But Frank Lampard’s side led for just four minutes as Awoniyi flicked home Orel Mangala’s delicate lob into the six-yard box to secure an impressive draw at Stamford Bridge.

It ended a run of seven successive league away defeats for Steve Cooper’s men and leaves them three points above third-bottom Leeds United with two games remaining.

Forest, who had taken just six away points from a possible 51 this season before the game, face Arsenal at home next Saturday then travel to Crystal Palace on the final day of the campaign.

Chelsea, who are now winless in seven home games in all competitions, stay 11th and face three of the top four within a week – Manchester City, Manchester United and Newcastle United – to end their miserable season.
