Nottingham Forest defender Danny Fox believes the Reds would have beaten Leeds United in October had it not been for Kemar Roofe's handballed goal, and insists that the Whites will not have it all their way when the two sides meet again later today.

Aitor Karanka’s side could only manage a 1-1 draw against Leeds at Elland Road as the hosts’ controversial equaliser was not chalked off despite Roofe helping the ball into the net with his arm.

The Reds’ form has dipped in recent games and they will hope to end their five-game winless run against Marcelo Bielsa’s side at the City Ground.

And Fox feels Nottingham Forest can compete with the sides at the top and will test Leeds at home.

“It is a massive game in front of a packed house, against Leeds, who are flying”, Fox was quoted as saying by the Nottingham Post.

“We went there and, bar a bad decision from the assistant referee, we would have come away with all three points

“I don’t worry about games, but particularly not against the teams at the top, because I know we will turn up for them and put in a good performance.

"We need to do that.”

Leeds suffered a defeat against Hull City in their final game of 2018, and their clash against Nottingham Forest is expected to be a tightly fought contest.
