Leeds United scored four second-half goals to defeat 10-man Nottingham Forest in April 2011 after a feisty contest at Elland Road. Forest dominated the first half but had Chris Cohen sent off after challenging George McCartney for a loose ball. Jonny Howson put Leeds in front from close range after the restart before Luciano Becchio headed a second goal. Garath McCleary pulled one back for the visitors with a superb curling effort but Max Gradel then struck with an 18-yard shot and fired home a rebound close to the end. The Whites would go on to win just one of their seven remaining league games finishing the campaign in seventh position, three points and a place behind Nottingham Forest.
