Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies saw his outfit move to within two points of the Coca-Cola Championship summit - then warned his side they have a hard lesson to learn after a 2-1 win over Reading. Davies said: "We could have had four or five goals in the first half but only scored twice and that gave Reading the opportunity to come back at us.
"It was a potential trapdoor for us playing against a side in a totally false position and they nearly made us pay in the second half.
"If we had scored a third goal - as we should - it would have been a totally different type of game in the second half and it's a lesson for us to learn.
"We've 20 games left to play and this very good young side we have here has got to show they are capable of playing under the pressure of being a top-eight side."
