CONFIRMED: Nottingham Forest and Leeds United line-ups

Nottingham Forest Night Stadium

Here is how Nottingham Forest and Leeds United will line up for today’s match:

Nottingham Forest starting XI: Darlow. Lichaj, Mancienne, Wilson, Tesche, Fryatt, Lansbury, Fox, Hunt, Antonio, Blackstock

Nottingham Forest subs: De Vries, Lascelles, Ince, Paterson, Burke, Assombalonga, Osborn

Leeds United starting XI: Silvestri, Byram, Pearce, Cooper, Warnock, Cook, Bianchi, Mowatt, Adryan, Antenucci, Sharp

Leeds United subs: S. Taylor, Berardi, Del Fabro, Tonge, Montenegro, Morison, Doukara

Nottingham Forest welcome Leeds United to the City Ground this evening in a match both sides will be desperate to win for different reasons.

Forest are currently five points outside the playoff places and will want to get back in the top six as soon as possible while Leeds United have suffered back-to-back defeats since their fine victory against Derby County.

That slump has seen Leeds slip to 19th in the Championship table, just five points outside the bottom three.

Leeds have more than enough to get a result today but they will have to be at their best, replicating the form that has seen them record some fine wins in each of Redfearn’s two spells in charge this season.

But Forest have won the last three meetings between the two sides and will be hopeful of making that four this evening.
