Nottingham Forest defeated Leeds United 2-0 at the City Ground in the Championship on Saturday.
Nottingham Forest players haven taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the win against Leeds United on Saturday.
An outstanding performance from the Reds saw Sabri Lamouchi’s side return to winning ways and secure another three points against one of their direct rivals for automatic promotion to the Premier League.
Goals from Sammy Ameobi and Tyler Walker were enough to secure the three points for Forest. They are now just one point off the automatic promotion places ahead of another home game against Charlton Athletic on Tuesday.
And Forest’s players have taken to social media to express their delight at the result, their fourth win in their last five games at the City Ground.
Here’s what Brice Samba, Joe Lolley, Matty Cash, Joe Worrall and Tyler Walker had to say…

Over the course of the 90 minutes at the City Ground, hosts Forest had just 30% of the possession, took 14 shots of which six were on target, and earned three corners.
Lamouchi’s side remain fourth in the Championship table with 54 points from 31 matches, which leaves them just one point off the automatic promotion places.
Forest will take on Charlton at the City Ground on Tuesday as they look to build on yesterday’s impressive victory.
Lamouchi has already hinted that he may make a few changes to his side. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise given the effort his players put in against Leeds.
