Forest show Liverpool how it's done!

Anderson and Earnshaw put the Reds in control and Billy Davies' men then survived the sending-off of Nicky Shorey against his former club to secure all three points, Lee Camp saving the Brian Howard penalty that followed Shoery's dismissal.

Reading battled to the end and Jimmy Kebe netted a consolation goal.

With Newcastle and West Brom meeting on Monday night, Forest now stand just two points off the top of the table and four clear of the play-off places.
