Confirmed Nottingham Forest v Leeds line-ups: Murphy starts, Adeyemi on the bench

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

Nottingham Forest starting XI: De Vries, Lichaj, Mills, Hobbs, Mancienne, Lansbury, Vaughan, Mendes, Osborn, Oliveira, O'Grady.

Nottingham Forest substitutes: Evtimov, Tesche, Ward, O.Burke, Trotter, Blackstock, C.Burke.

Leeds United starting XI: Silvestri, Wootton, Bellusci, Cooper, Taylor, Byram, Cook, Bridcutt, Murphy, Dallas, Wood.

Leeds United substitutes: Peacock-Farrell, Coyle, Bamba, Adeyemi, Sloth, Doukara, Antenucci.

Nottingham Forest and Leeds United will be hoping to keep up their impressive recent form as they meet at the City Ground this afternoon.

Forest are unbeaten in the last five games, having won three and drawn two under Dougie Freedman, with their las game a 2-1 win over MK Dons last weekend.

Left back Daniel Pinillos was taking off injured in that game, and the Spaniard has been replaced by Jack Hobbs in defence this afternoon, whilst the rest of the team remains unchanged.

Chris Burke and Oliver Burke come on to the bench for Forest, with Crystal Palace loanee Jonny Williams missing out this afternoon.

Meanwhile, Leeds United are unbeaten in four games, winning three in that run, including a 1-0 victory over Preston North End last time out.

Manager Steve Evans has named an unchanged team from that game, meaning Luke Murphy keeps his place in central midfield despite the return of Tom Adeyemi, who is on the bench.

Forgotten midfielder Casper Sloth also has a place on the bench, alongside the likes of Sol Bamba, Souleymane Doukara and Mirco Antenucci.
