Foxes too smart for Forest

27 February 2010 06:23
Leicester stretched their unbeaten league run to a season-best eight matches as midlands promotion rivals Nottingham Forest fell apart in a 3-0 defeat at the Walkers Stadium. The Foxes avenged their 5-1 drubbing in the reverse fixture in December with three goals in 13 second-half minutes to keep themselves firmly in the Coca-Cola Championship play-off picture and deal another blow to Forest's automatic promotion hopes. Swiss full-back Bruno Berner broke the deadlock after 68 minutes, Paul Gallacher curled home a delightful free-kick in the 79th minute and Andy King completed the scoring two minutes later. Leicester consolidated fifth place in the table but a fourth successive away defeat saw Forest replaced by West Brom in second position.
