Fixture: Nottingham Forest vs Leeds United
Competition: Championship
Kick-off: 15:00 (UK time)

Leeds United have officially announced their starting line-up and substitutes to go up against Aitor Karanka's Nottingham Forest outfit at the City Ground today.

The Whites scored a controversial equaliser to hold Forest to a draw in the earlier meeting between the two clubs at Elland Road earlier this term.




While Leeds have gone from strength to strength and top the Championship table, Nottingham Forest are just tenth and the pressure has been piled onto Karanka.

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa goes with Bailey Peacock-Farrell between the sticks, while in defence he trusts in Pontus Jansson and Kalvin Phillips. Jack Harrison and Mateusz Klich slot into midfield, while Pablo Hernandez, Ezgjan Alioski and Adam Forshaw support Kemar Roofe.

If Bielsa needs to make changes he has a bench full of options, inclduing Lewis Baker and Jack Clarke.
