Leeds United 0-0 Nottingham Forest: Honours even at Elland Road

Leeds United and Nottingham Forest drew 0-0 this weekend.

Leeds United could not make it three wins in a row as they were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Nottingham Forest this weekend.

Charlie Taylor had a good chance for the hosts in the first half but his effort was kept out by Forest goalkeeper Karl Darlow while Chris Burke could have scored for the visitors were it not for good work from Leeds' 'keeper Marco Silvestri.

Such has been the two clubs' form in recent times that this match really could have gone either way, and it may be the case that both Neil Redfearn and Dougie Freedman ultimately accept that a point was not a bad return for their efforts.

Mirco Antenucci could have made an emphatic statement to his manager had he scored with a late chance but again Darlow proved equal to it.

The result means Forest climbed to within eight points of a playoff place while Leeds went level on points with Charlton Athletic following their home defeat to Blackburn Rovers.
