Leeds 1-1 Nottm Forest
Steve Guppy turned from hero to villain as Leeds shared the points with Forest.

Guppy put Leeds ahead when he rose at the far post to head home Frazer Richardson's cross from the right.

But Forest were handed a lifeline when Guppy needlessly fouled Paul Evans in the area and Andy Reid stepped up to convert the penalty.

Leeds pushed forward and Julian Joachim forced a great save from Paul Gerrard before Brian Deane's downward header bounced over - but Forest held on.

  • Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell on his side's failure to convert their chances:

    "If you don't take them Forest are always a side that can get a goal.

    "We created enough chances, played with a bit of flair, we played with passion, but put our foot on the ball when it mattered.

    "We're bitterly disappointed not to have taken three points which I thought we deserved."

  • Forest boss Joe Kinnear on his side's performance:

    "We remain undefeated and worked hard for the result.

    "We chased the game and got rewarded for a little bit of bravery.

    "We were throwing people forward, putting people under pressure and Andy Reid tucked the penalty away nicely."
