Confirmed: Leeds United and Nottingham Forest line-ups

Here is how Leeds United and Nottingham Forest will line up this afternoon:

Leeds United starting XI: Silvestri, Wootton, Bamba, Bellusci, Berardi, Murphy, Cook, Mowatt, Taylor, Morison, Sharp

Leeds United subs: S. Taylor, Cooper, Sloth, Doukara, Antenucci, Phillips. Cani

Nottingham Forest starting XI: Darlow, Lichaj, Lascelles, Wilson, Mancienne, Burke, Gardner, Osborn, Lansbury, Antonio, Blackstock

Nottingham Forest subs: Evtimov, Collins, Fox, Paterson, Vaughan, Veldwijk, Walker

Leeds United welcome Nottingham Forest to Elland Road in an important Championship match for both sides.

Leeds will want to build on recent victories against Ipswich Town and Wigan Athletic which have seen them climb up to 13th in the table, while Forest will not have given up on a playoff place after defeating Middlesbrough last time out.

Dougie Freedman’s side are currently ninth in the table and will know how important an away victory could ultimately be.

That said, Leeds have impressed more often than not in recent times and another win here will see them reach the 50-point mark.

Forest have won six of their last eight matches and have lost just once since January, while Leeds are a force at home, with their young side impressing time and time again.

With Forest winning only one of their last three away matches, it makes today’s game a very interesting encounter.
