Brennan Johnson scored the only goal as Nottingham Forest beat Leeds 1-0 to move six points clear of the Premier League relegation places.

Forest were second best throughout the first half but led at the break thanks to Johnson’s thumping 14th-minute strike.

After Leeds failed to clear a free-kick on the right, the ball bounced up for Wales forward to rifle it into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.
