VIDEO: Watch Billy Sharp's emphatic penalty against Forest

Elland Road East Stand

Billy Sharp produced an emphatic finish to equalise for Leeds United against Nottingham Foest last weekend.

Leeds United put an end to a losing streak last weekend with the 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest.

Leeds had suffered defeats at the hands of Ipswich Town and Fulham, but they head into the Boxing Day game against Wigan with a little bit of momentum.

Neil Redfearn will want to see a bit more creativity and precision from his attack for the game, as well as more effective and basic defending.

He’ll want the side to head into 2015 in a much better position than the one they’re currently enjoying with the aim at the club still a place, potentially alongside Forest, in the play-offs.

Matty Fryatt opened the scoring for Forest after some hesitation from the Leeds defence before Billy Sharp stepped up to emphatically finish from the penalty spot, after Leeds were awarded a spot kick.

Watch the highlights via the video below. Sharp’s penalty can be viewed from around 35 seconds in.
