A stunning victory at Elland Road provided a platform to safety for Nottingham Forest

'I'm quite embarrassed about the result.

'You've got to be stronger mentally in certain areas to avoid results like that. I've learnt probably more tonight than I have in the other games.'

Leeds manager Neil Warnock can't quite believe it as Garath McCleary scores four in a 7-3 win for the Reds.

'We have got to where we are now after a good run, and the boys are very confident.

'The injuries we had made November, December and January very dark months. But they are behind us now.'

Steve Cotterill can see clearly now after Raddy Majewski's hat-trick sees off Crystal Palace.

'We were going down because the squad is unbalanced and this still needs addressing.

'From the minute I sold Wes Morgan I knew there was something I could do.'

Cotterill toasts survival after defeat at Reading but knows that a long summer lies ahead.

'They came in and were saying to us that we had good players; they were asking why we were down where we were.

'And it was a bit of a wake-up for the rest of us, it made us ask the same questions. We suddenly realised that we had to take the bull by the horns and get ourselves out of trouble.'

Luke Chambers outlines the importance of Cotterill's loan signings to Forest's survival.
