Matty Fryatt had two goals ruled out in controversial fashion as Nottingham Forest were denied a Sky Bet Championship victory over Leeds at the City Ground.

The Reds striker had given Stuart Pearce's side the lead in first-half injury-time - but either side of that he had two efforts ruled out for offside, with television replays suggesting they should have stood.

And Neil Redfearn's side secured a 1-1 draw as former Forest player Billy Sharp netted emphatically from the spot in the 54th minute, after Sam Byram had been tripped by Danny Fox.

Birmingham beat Nottingham Forest 2-1 in a frantic finish at St Andrew's to increase their unbeaten run to five games under Gary Rowett.

Birmingham appeared to be coasting to a comfortable win following David Cotterill's first-half strike when Britt Assombalonga grabbed a fine equaliser in the 84th minute.

Assombalonga was Forest's hero with his goal but he then became their villain five minutes later when he handled the ball in the area and was sent off for the offence.

Paul Caddis, who had missed the previous penalty he had taken at St Andrew's, made no mistake from the spot sending goalkeeper Karl Darlow the wrong way.

Ince heads to Forest

Nottingham Forest have completed the loan signing of Hull midfielder Tom Ince.

Reds boss Stuart Pearce has been in talks with the Barclays Premier League club for several days and on Thursday morning an agreement was reached for the 22-year-old winger to move to the City Ground on a deal until December 28.

Pearce is keen to breathe new life into his side's promotion push, following a seven-match winless run in the Sky Bet Championship, and Ince will go straight into the Forest squad for Saturday's trip to Huddersfield.

Brian Clough will be honoured in Nottingham Forest’s Capital One Cup tie against Spurs on Wednesday, September 24 when 1,000 fans will be given replicas of his famous fashion accessory - a green round neck jumper - to wear at the fixture.

Capital One, the Nottingham-based credit card company and League Cup sponsor, will be handing out the iconic jumpers to all fans travelling on the official supporters’ coaches to White Hart Lane.

A limited number will also be given to Forest fans at the stadium on a first-come-first-served basis.

Clough, one of football’s most loved characters, passed away on September 20, 2004.

Nottingham is the city of football

Nottingham has beaten off Manchester and Portsmouth to win the right to stage a £1.6million two-year pilot project aimed at testing ways of getting more people playing football regularly.

The Football Association had £1.6millionn of public funding for the amateur game cut by Sport England in March after failing to reverse a decline in participation - last year there were 1.84million people playing football regularly, a fall of 100,000 since April 2013.
