Leeds see off Forest

Published Add your comment

Gary Speed was remembered in style by his first club Leeds on an emotional evening at the City Ground that saw Simon Grayson's men beat Nottingham Forest 4-0 in the npower Championship.

A minute's applause was held and players from both teams wore black armbands in tribute to Speed, who started his career at Elland Road and won the first division title with the club in 1992.

And Grayson's men heeded their manager's call to put in a special performance, with goals from Robert Snodgrass, Jonathan Howson, Luciano Becchio and Adam Clayton before Forest's Andy Reid was sent off late on.
