Nottingham Forest made it 14 games unbeaten in all competitions as boss Billy Davies enjoyed a victorious FA Cup return to Preston with a 2-0 fourth-round replay win.

The Forest manager has now only lost once in 10 meetings with North End, who he twice took to the play-offs in the second tier, in his jobs with his current employers and in a previous post with Derby.

Jamie Mackie had converted the visitors' first real chance of the contest with a fine left-footed shot inside the opening 20 minutes.

However, they were made to weather a second-half storm, needing two last-ditch Jamaal Lascelles blocks and a late Darius Henderson strike before their fifth-round date at Sheffield United could be confirmed.
