Steve Evans: 'Leeds United dominated Nottingham Forest'

Leeds United manager Steve Evans claims that his side dominated Nottingham Forest at the City Ground and should have come away with all three points.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans has claimed that his side deserved all three points from their Championship clash with Nottingham Forest this evening.

The visitors saw the majority of the ball at the City Ground, but only came away with a point courtesy of an 80th-minute equaliser from Sam Byram, cancelling out Nelson Oliveira's first-half opener.

Evans believes that Forest will be the happier of the two teams with the draw, but conceded that his side needed to be more incisive in the final third.

"I know Forest fans will be going in the car saying they'll take that point. They've been on a terrific run of form. I've watched games where they've been by far the dominant side. But today they've had the reverse of that," he is quoted as saying by PA.

"I think in the final third we must do a lot with the quality of the pass. Passing from the midfield was quite exceptional. But in the final third, that needs to be much better. That's areas to work on.

"This team has gone from normally being completely outplayed in the Championship to outplaying teams a lot of the time. But we've got a lot work to do if we want to get on and catch teams."

Leeds have just two days to rest before hosting league leaders Derby County on Tuesday evening.
