Two changes from the game at Birmingham and we will just have to see if the majority of the side are able to play another game in such a short space of time.

Leeds XI

GK – Felix Wiedwald – Now the established number one. Forest will want to put balls into the box for Daryl Murphy.

RB – Luke Ayling – I seriously think he needs a rest. Hasn’t played well recently, mainly because he looks shattered.

CB – Pontus Jansson – The easiest decision of the day for Thomas Christiansen.

CB – Liam Cooper (c) – Captains the side again, will have his work cut out with Forest passing the ball about patiently in front of him, must stay focused.


LB – Gaetano Berardi – 101 for the Swiss full-back, will want to make a statement after a poor show at Birmingham.

CM – Kalvin Phillips – Keeps his place after the nightmare in Birmingham, will have the chance to bomb on today, needs to hit the penalty spot.


CM – Eunan O’Kane – Back in the side after injury. Up against a strong Forest midfield, needs to win the battle early.

RW – Gjanni Alioski – Big game, his form has dipped and arguabley his best game in a Leeds shirt was in the return fixture.

CAM – Samu Saiz – Finally.

LW – Pablo Hernandez – Pressure off him now Saiz is back. Needs to be patient, he will get space.

ST – Kemar Roofe – Needs to be given the service. Gets a chance you would expect him to score.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
