  • Thanks for joining me here, where the final score is Leeds United 0-2 Nottingham Forest

  • Not the best performance from Leeds, who took too long to get going and were stung by those early Forest goals. Things picked up in the second half, but there was never any real threat

  • That's it! Forest win 2-0 thanks to a brace from Matt Derbyshire and move to within a point of the playoffs!

  • That's it! Forest win 2-0 at Elland Road to move within a point of the playoffs1

  • Evtimov collects a long ball and Forest are just trying to run the clock out here

  • Good save! Butland takes a free kick on the halfway line, and after Leeds mess about with it for a while, Smith heads goalwards but Evtimov bundles it away

  • Pearce! SHould do better. Leeds win a corner after good work from Mowatt down the right, and Pearce leaps highest but it hits the top of his head and flies over

  • Five minutes of injury time for Leeds to find anything. It doesn't look likely, especially as Austin's pass is overhit and Forest clear

  • Smith! The big man beats Evtimov, who came far too early, in the air but can only head it wide. Big chance, one he knows he should have taken

  • McCormack is nearly in, but Smith's flick via Austin's cross is just too high and Evtimov collects easily

  • Leeds have a corner after Smith's turn and shot is deflected wide. Murphy's cross is good, but Lees jumps slightly too early and heads over. Good chance

  • Subdued atmosphere now as Forest start to regain control after that spell of Leeds pressure. Just five minutes, plus a considerable amount of stoppage time, for the hosts to find something

  • Paterson goes off for Jara as Forest make their final sub

  • McCormack isn't happy at the length of time Evitmov takes to kick it, and then when he finally does it's straight along the ground. Forest still manage to win a throw-in though

  • De Vries goes off for Bulgarian debutant Dimitar Evtimov

  • De Vries looks in a bad way again as he goes to catch a ball. Looks like his right hamstring is the problem

  • Close! First Pugh hits the cross bar with a cross, and then Murphy's goalbound shot is deflected for a corner by Collins. However the corner comes to nothing

  • It's all Leeds as they keep trying to put crosses in, but Forest are solid and there's no way through

  • De Vries is still in a bit of discomfort and the Forest trainer goes to give him some treatment, but is told to leave the field by the ref as the 'keeper seems fine

  • Smith wins a free kick by doing what he does best and getting his body in the way of a high ball. However Leeds try to play it short and Brown's pass is woeful and goes out for a throw-in
