Predicted Leeds United line-up to play Nottingham Forest: 24-year-old returns

Leeds United

Here is how we predict Leeds United and Nottingham Forest will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 6th February 2016 at 15:00. Venue: Elland Road, Leeds

Odds: Leeds 6/4, Draw 11/5, Forest 9/5

Leeds United welcome Nottingham Forest to Elland Road on Saturday, with the Whites seeking to build on their fine recent form and Dougie Freedman’s side looking for their first win in three matches in all competitions.

Leeds are currently 15th in the Championship table with 36 points from 29 matches while Forest are three points and four places better off as things stand.

Forest will not have given up hope of reaching the play-offs but there is a lot of ground to make up in the remaining fixtures, meaning they must overcome Leeds in their own backyard to kick-start a run of victories between now and May.

Leeds did not make the deadline day additions many fans expected so it is up to manager Steve Evans to choose from the players already at his disposal.

Summer signing Chris Wood is currently out with a hamstring injury and recently had a scan after missing the FA Cup clash with Bolton Wanderers last weekend.
