Garry Monk hails Leeds win over Nottingham Forest
Leeds' brilliant form since October hit a wall when they lost at Barnsley, but struggling Nottingham Forest were swept aside as Monk's men made it six home clean sheets and victories in a row.
After a goalless first-half, Leeds seized the initiative after the restart and secured a 2-0 win thanks to Chris Wood's 20th of the season and Souleymane Doukara's incredible 20-yard volley.

"It was a fantastic strike, you won't see too many cleaner or better ones this season," Monk said.
"It was a fantastic goal but the main thing for us was to bounce back. We felt it would be important, when we spoke in pre-season, to bounce back from negatives, show we could recover.

"It was a difficult first half, their game plan was working. It made the tempo lower and we found it difficult at times.
"It ended up a mucky game, stale. We made a few tweaks, upped our intensity and we win games when we do that.
"To show we can bounce back, that was the main thing."
