Leeds manager Simon Grayson dedicated his side's 4-0 win at Nottingham Forest to Gary Speed, saying: "He would have been delighted with that".

Grayson signed schoolboy forms with Leeds on the same day as Speed when the pair were 14, forging a lifelong friendship that ended when Speed was found dead at his home on Sunday aged 42.

"It's been a difficult couple of days for myself and Gary's family, supporters of Leeds United and supporters in general," Grayson said afterwards. "Gary Speed was a fantastic person and I wanted my players to go out and produce a performance for him. It's been difficult, but I'm a very proud manager. I'm delighted to have got a result for Gary Speed."
