Nott'm Forest   1 - 1   Leeds United

Rob Earnshaw of Nottingham Forest controls under pressure from Federico Bessone

Highlights - Nottingham Forest 1-1 Leeds

Nottingham Forest and Leeds had to settle for a point apiece after they fought out a draw at the City Ground.

The home side took a deserved lead when Dexter Blackstock guided in a header from Chris Gunter's cross.

Robert Earnshaw hit the Leeds post before the visitors slowly worked their way back into the game and equalised through Lloyd Sam's glanced header.

Neil Kilkenny almost snatched a late win for Leeds but saw his shot go narrowly wide.

Forest had earlier looked like they would ease to victory after making a storming start to the game - and nearly scoring - in the opening two minutes.

Gunter provided a cross which Paul Anderson chested toward goal from close range and, even though Leeds keeper Kasper Schmeichel kicked it away, he would have had little chance if the ball had fallen either side of him.

Forest's domination was rewarded when another threatening cross from Gunter from the right flank was nodded precisely into the far bottom corner by Blackstock.

Only the woodwork then saved Leeds from going further behind when Earnshaw was through after a neat one-two but, after lifting a shot over the on-rushing Schmeichel, saw his effort come back off the post.

The visitors eventually began to find their feet and Lucciano Becchio was played in by Sam but was let down by a heavy first touch, allowing keeper Lee Camp to come out and smother his shot.

However, Sam made a late run into the box to head in a Johnson cross to level for a Leeds side, which had a more threatening presence about them as the game wore on.

Tempers frayed late in the game as Gunter and Sanchez Watt clashed before Leeds midfielder Kilkenny flashed a shot wide of the Forest post.


Leeds United manager Simon Grayson tells BBC Radio Leeds:

"The way the second half panned out I thought we were the better team.

"We created better chances but obviously the first 10 or 15 minutes we were under a lot of pressure and it could have been game over by half-time.

"The early goal put us on the back foot. We knew that Forest would come out and have a real good go at us.

"We changed the system slightly to try and get a foothold back in the game and obviously we got the goal which gave the players a bit of belief."
