Nottingham Forest couldn't find a winner as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Leeds United.

Two out of form teams met at the City Ground this evening, as Leeds United traveled to face Nottingham Forest in a Championship clash.

Forest went into the game having failed to win any of their last three games, whilst Leeds had lost three of the last four games and were in need of a result to stop the rot.

However, their cause didn't start off well, as Matty Fryatt put Forest into the lead on the stroke of half time, turning the ball home from close range from a corner.

Leeds did hit back though, as Danny Fox's foul on Sam Byram inside the area gave Leeds the chance to equalise, and former Forest striker Billy Sharp stepped up to pull the Whites level.

Yet Forest will feel hard done by to only take a point from the game, as Fryatt had two goals ruled out for offside, yet both should've been given.

Forest had more chances, but couldn't find the winner, with the pressure beginning to mount on manager Stuart Pearce once again.

The result leaves Forest in ninth place, seven points off the play-offs whilst Leeds move on to 24 points, rising up to 18th place, five points clear of the dreaded relegation zone.
