Davies grateful for lucky break

Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies made no apology for the huge slice of luck which saw his side beat Leicester to move back into the npower Championship play-off places.

Captain Paul McKenna struck in the 84th minute to give Forest a 3-2 win, but saw his shot fumbled into the net by Foxes goalkeeper Chris Weale. It was a horrible error but put Forest back into the top six.

Davies said: "We haven't had much luck this season but we have seen a bit of fortune for once with the winner. I don't apologise for that because it has been going against us too often."

He added: "I've been saying for weeks it will be a photo finish for the play-offs and that's where we are.

"All we can do is give it our best shot and see where it takes us."

Leicester boss Sven-Goran Eriksson was left to curse his fragile side after they again shipped three goals on the road.

Any chance of making the play-offs appear to have ended as the Foxes are now six points shy of Forest with just nine points to play for.

He said: "It's frustrating because once again away from home we have played good football but conceded three goals.

"We did very well to come back twice quickly but again it has finished the way it has too many times this season.

"We are playing well but we are conceding too many goals and too easily. The opposition does not have to work hard to score against us and it must change."
