Hull's automatic promotion bid continued to falter as they were held to a second successive home draw and slipped to fourth in the Sky Bet Championship table.

Hull were held 1-1 by Nottingham Forest, the same score as against MK Dons at the KC Stadium on Saturday.

Forest earned new manager Paul Williams a point in his first game in charge since being appointed to replace Dougie Freedman for the remainder of the season.

Forest took a first-half lead through Gary Gardner's rising shot from distance before Sone Aluko slid home a second half equaliser for Hull whose winless run in the Championship extended to four games.

Michail Antonio has joined West Ham from Nottingham Forest for a fee of around £6million.

The winger has signed a four-year deal with the Premier League outfit after impressing at the City Ground.

I've worked my way from non-league and finally got to the Premier League to show what I can do. If the fans don't know me from the Championship, what I bring to the table is pace, power and goals, so hopefully I can do that this season. I'm buzzing and finally happy to be back in London at a massive club. I've always been around London and I came to a couple of games here when I was younger, so I'm happy to be finally here and at a club I watched when I was younger.

Stuart Pearce has urged Newcastle fans to be patient with impending arrivals Karl Darlow and Jamaal Lascelles as they attempt to get to grip with the Premier League.

The 24-year-old keeper and the central defender, 21, were signed by the Magpies from Nottingham Forest in a joint deal for an undisclosed fee in August last year before immediately being loaned back to the Championship club for the season.

Well, they are both outstanding lads, without question. Their character is first-class. However, I don't think they are ready yet to go straight into the Premier League.

Both the club and the fans will have to give them time and encouragement. They are potential rather than the finished article.

Darlow more or less played in my first team regularly, but Lascelles not quite so much. He will require a bit more time.

However, from their point of view the move is ideal. They weren't about to play for a Premier League club staying at Forest, but now hopefully they are.
