Billy Sharp struck twice as Nottingham Forest turned on the style either side of half-time to send in-form Leeds spiralling to a 4-2 defeat at the City Ground.
Forest, who had slipped to 11th place after taking only four points from their previous five matches, were the latest side to make a mockery of the form book in the npower Championship after Sharp converted a late first-half penalty to cancel out Paul Green's early opener for Leeds.
Sharp fired his second of the game soon after the restart and a three-goal blitz in nine minutes - Rodolph Austin scored a clumsy own goal and Dexter Blackstock headed home the fourth - stunned the visitors who responded with a late goal from Davide Somma.
