Nottingham Forest v Leeds match altered due to television

Nottingham Forest and Leeds United will now kick off at 5:15pm on December 20.

Nottingham Forest’s match against Leeds United at The City Ground has been slightly altered as it will now be televised.

As a result, the match on Saturday December 20 will now kick off at the later time of 5:15pm.

The news comes shortly after both sides saw other matches rearranged, with Leeds’ game against Derby County switched to December 30 and Forest’s match against Birmingham City now starting at 12:00pm on December 28.

Forest have slipped down the table in recent weeks after beginning the campaign in fine form, while Leeds have had something of a rollercoaster already, climbing up the table under caretaker manager Neil Redfearn but slipping again – at least temporarily – since Darko Milanic took charge.

It will be interesting to see where both sides are by the time they meet shortly before Christmas, but with the encounter now on television, it means neutrals will also get the chance to see two of the most intriguing sides in the Championship face off.
