    Nottm Forest 1 - 1 Leeds
    Sam Byram hit a late low strike to end Nottingham Forest's winning home run and give Leeds a point.
    Byram, who could leave the club next month, drove in from 25 yards to score with Leeds' first shot on target.
    Earlier Nelson Oliveira took advantage of a mix-up in the Leeds defence to give Forest the lead.
    Leeds dominated possession throughout but were poor in front of goal until Byram's strike, while Forest sub Oliver Burke hit the post in the 90th minute.
    A Forest winner would have been hard on Leeds, who became the first team to take a point from the City Ground since late October.
    The visitors looked slick on the ball early on but were undone by Matt Mills' long ball over the top. Centre-back Giuseppe Bellusci and goalkeeper Marco Silvestri both failed to clear, allowing Oliveira to go on and tap into an empty net.
    Mills then had a header cleared off the line by Luke Murphy, and Forest substitute Jamie Ward had a shot turned over by Silvestri before Leeds mounted a late challenge.
