Nottingham Forest defeated Leeds United and raised the possibility of securing an automatic promotion place this season.

The Reds were superb in beating the Whites and on another afternoon the margin of victory could have been even higher.

Forest produced a brilliant performance to bounce back from defeat at Birmingham City last weekend, with each and every player putting in a solid showing.

Leeds and Marcelo Bielsa threw everything at Forest but the defence stood firm and kept the Yorkshiremen at bay.

Next up for the Reds is Charlton on Tuesday night and Lamouchi will know that his team must keep pushing on towards the top two.
