Former Chelsea and Everton winger Pat Nevin on BBC Radio 5 Live:

"Looking around at the other results today, a point away from home at Newcastle after the Geordies had such a big weekend is a huge result for Everton. Yes they will be disappointed with the result at Forest but to come back and get a point here is huge.

"They know they have a battle on their hands now until the end of the season, and if you battle to get odd points like this one, then it may just be enough.

"Most important thing for the Toffees? Their striker scored a goal.

"Before he scored the equaliser from the spot, Dominic Calvert-Lewin had a chance on the left hand side and he never looked like scoring. A confident striker in that situation runs free and slots the ball into the corner of the net, but he just didn't seem to fancy himself.

"But when the penalty came and he had the chance he took it. He was brave and took a very good penalty. That may well prove to be the moment that breaks the dam for Dominic Calvert-Lewin and for Everton.

"I hope it is that because they have worked hard and a lot has gone against them this season, some their own fault some not, but if he can score the goals that will definitely help their cause."
