Sone Aluko clambered off the bench to salvage a point for Hull but could not prevent them ceding further ground in the Championship promotion race.
Steve Bruce’s team had the opportunity to return to the automatic promotion places with victory but England Under-21 midfielder Gary Gardner’s spectacular long-ranger, his first goal in 11 months, handed Forest a 27th-minute lead and they failed to overturn it.
A month ago Hull were two points clear at the summit but have stalled to leave Burnley the best-placed of the relegated clubs to make an immediate return to the Premier League.
Hull have won only one of their last six matches. The Tigers also paraded Nigeria’s Chuba Akpom and Moses Odubajo on the night.
