The side highlighted their prowess in front of goal by scoring in their 12th straight top-flight game.
The equaliser came from Taiwo Awoniyi's knockdown and the Nigeria striker is becoming an integral part of a Forest side that keeps changing personnel, now contributing a goal or assist in his last nine league games.
Manager Steve Cooper said: "Any new player will want to hit the ground running and show what they can do. We got Anthony Elanga and Callum in good positions a lot of the time but he has quality and have moments of brilliance.
"You need that at times in the Premier League and glad we got one tonight."
