Middlesbrough suffered back to back defeat for the first time this season to surrender their lead at the top to Hull City.
The Teesiders were punished for their profligate shooting skills and generous defense with a late strike at the Riverside.
Aitor Karanka charges ended their over 90 minutes of league action without conceding away to Bristol City before dropping points at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
Albert Adomah, 27, was powerless to prevent Borough from dropping valuable points despite enjoying the lion’s share of possession in front of their own fans. The then table toppers lost Steward Downing at the break due to muscular complains but returned from the dugout poised for that elusive opening goal of the game.
Notting Forest however punished their Riverside outfit with 70 minute powerful strike to silence the deafening home fans after a quick break.
English forward Jamie Ward shot his side into an unlikely lead only for the goal to prove an eventual match winner.
Hull City now tops the Championship with 56 points, one above Middlesbrough though the Tigers have played a game more.
Adomahha since scored 6 goals in his 28 appearances for Aitor Karanka all conquering Teesiders.
