Sheff Utd 1-2 Nottm Forest
Former Sheffield United striker Gareth Taylor returned to haunt his old club and take Nottingham Forest another step closer to First Division survival.

Taylor headed home the winner 16 minutes from time after a corner by midfielder Andy Reid.

Alan Wright had opened the scoring for the Blades with his first goal for three-and-a-half years, which came via a 20-yard free-kick.

That cancelled out Marlon King's 24th-minute, scored from close range.

The shock win means Forest, boosted by the appointment of Joe Kinnear, have now put together a run of five wins and four draws in 11 matches.

But while aspirations of mid-table respectability have replaced relegation fears for the Reds, the Blades are facing up to the prospect of missing out on the play-offs.

Neil Warnock's men have lost their last two games and have recorded one win in five from which they have taken just five points.

Sheff Utd: Kenny, Francis, Wright, Phil Jagielka, Morgan, Montgomery, McCall, Ndlovu, Tonge, Gray, Lester. Subs: Kozluk, Shaw, Allison, Sestanovich, Rankine.

Nott'm Forest: Gerrard, Louis-Jean, Doig, Morgan, Dawson, Impey, Evans, Reid, Williams, Taylor, King. Subs: Roche, Thompson, Jess, Johnson, Sonner.

Referee: A Bates (Staffordshire).
