Predicted Leeds United and Nottingham Forest line-ups: One change for Redfearn

Leeds United

Here are the possible sides for Leeds United against Nottingham Forest this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 14th March 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Elland Road, Leeds

Odds: Leeds 19/10, Draw 12/5, Forest 13/8

Leeds United face a massive challenge this weekend to get the better of a resurgent Nottingham Forest team playing well under Dougie Freedman.

Leeds have been in good form since the turn of the year and this is a chance for them to further consolidate their position in the Championship.

Leeds have the added advantage of home support for this game and it will be interesting to see whether they can give the fans something to shout about, which could put Forest onto the back foot for the start of the game.

Forest have been playing a good brand of effective football since Freedman came in and replaced Stuart Pearce as manager.

They need to produce a perfect run of form over their remaining games to be in with any chance of finishing in the top six by the end of the campaign.

Forest have the better attacking record between the teams this season, but Leeds have the edge in terms of defence, which suggests that Freedman’s side are going to have to work hard to get over the winning line.
