Leeds United boss Neil Warnock is "embarrassed" after their 7-3 mauling by Nottingham Forest.

At one stage Leeds got back from 3-1 down to 3-3, but they then crumbled.

Former QPR manager Warnock said: "I'm quite embarrassed about the result. But I don't think you learn much about your players when you're winning games, I think you learn things when things go against you, who stands up and who you want in the trenches with you.

"I've learnt probably more than I have in the other games tonight, but in fairness some of them were just shattered. We're a bit thin on the ground, but I don't think the centre-backs played poorly, I just thought every shot was going to go in.

"We've fought back really well but the fourth goal was terrible, it was a Sunday League goal. You've got to be stronger mental in certain areas to avoid results like that."
