Championship scores and table: Leeds and Brentford share spoils after ANOTHER Kiko Casilla howler while Charlton topple Nottingham Forest


Leeds United were held to a draw away at promotion rivals Brentford after another horror mistake from keeper Kiko Casilla.

After inexplicably allowing the ball to loop over his head from a corner at home to Wigan in the Whites’ last game, the Spaniard was caught out once again at Griffin Park.

After allowing a loose ball to roll under his feet, Said Benrahma had the easy task of tapping home to give the Bees the lead in the crucial clash.

But Marcelo Bielsa’s side refused to give up and found a way back through captain Liam Cooper as he pounced on a loose ball from a corner.

Elsewhere, Nottingham Forest suffered a debilitating defeat at home to Charlton in a serious blow to their Play-Off chances.

Lyle Taylor snuck in at the far post to tuck home a wicked cross from the left and, despite hitting the bar just moments later, Forest were held by the plucky south London side.
