Nottingham Forest fans are celebrating this morning after their team thumped Leeds United 7-3 at Elland Road last night.

The ten goal thriller was Leeds worst ever home defeat.

Reds striker Garath McCleary hit the net four times in a crazy game which saw five goals in eight minutes.

It was also Leeds worst ever home defeat. Seven is the magic number for Forest this morning.

The result leaves them seven points clear of the Championship relegation zone.

Today would also have been Brian Clough's 77th birthday.

Seeing his beloved Forest put seven past Leeds - a club he had unhappy memories of - would surely have made it a very happy birthday indeed.
