Orel Mangala’s clinical 12th-minute opener had Forest dreaming of adding elusive Premier League away points to their measly tally of six but Leeds, who started the night in the relegation zone, produced a spirited first-half fightback to secure three vital points.
Jack Harrison erased the Forest lead when he emphatically punished a spill by Keylor Navas in the 20th minute and the comeback was completed on the stroke of half-time by Luis Sinisterra’s sublime solo effort.
It proved enough for Leeds to secure their second victory in three games as Javi Gracia‘s side climbed up to 13th in the table, four places and two points ahead of Forest, who are now winless in their last eight and remain out of the relegation zone only on goal difference.
An expectant Elland Road crowd inspired Leeds to a blistering start but they were silenced inside 12 minutes. Emmanuel Dennis, who had seen an earlier close-range shot cannon off the post, turned provider on the counter, picking out Mangala on the edge of the area, who clinically dispatched Forest’s opener past Illan Meslier.
Forest’s lead would last all of eight minutes. Marc Roca’s long-range strike proved too hot for goalkeeper Navas to handle and Harrison reacted first to ram home his fourth Premier League goal of the season on the rebound.
Forest retained a threat on the counter but Leeds’ grip on the contest only strengthened once parity was restored and there was a growing sense inside Elland Road another goal was imminent.
After Patrick Bamford and Sinisterra passed up presentable chances, Leeds finally underlined their authority on the cusp of half-time when the Colombia international cut inside off the left flank and rifled an unstoppable effort into the far corner.

“Points are always important, but they are even more important when there are 10 games to go. For the confidence and spirit of the team it’s always important to get good results and keep things going.”
Steve Cooper on the postmatch interview
“We had a decent enough start getting the goal, but our failure to build on that is really what has cost us.
“From the goal to half-time we really fell short with that performance. We didn’t show enough bravery with the ball, not enough technique or courage, and for that we didn’t manage to build any momentum.
“At the same time, without the ball we were too passive, there was too much space between lines, and we were too easy to beat. We gave Leeds momentum and rhythm, and they made the most of it.”
