Forshaw has just returned to action after a two-year injury layoff and has immediately impressed Leeds supporters with his performances.


His contributions were important in helping the Whites win their midweek Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace, handing the side breathing space over the drop zone.



Now though, the 30-year-old is turning his focus towards Sunday’s Elland Road fixture against Brentford, where he feels that the home crowd will yet again rally the team and help bring the best out of them.


“Really looking forward to [Sunday], especially after the win on Tuesday”, Forshaw told BBC Radio Leeds.



“It gives us a bit of momentum.”


Giving an insight into his conversation with team-mate Stuart Dallas following the win on Tuesday, Forshaw added: “I was speaking to Stu Dallas after the game and I don’t hear a noise like that in any other stadium, genuinely.



“The way the fans were, it doesn’t half drive us on.


“We were in the ice bath talking about it. I think it adds to our intensity, it’s almost like you feel a push on your back.


“When we hear the noise you want to give that extra yard and it rallies you.


“I love it personally, I think it gets the best out of us.”


Leeds’ opponents on Sunday are a team that Forshaw has played for, but taking away his emotions surrounding his previous club, Forshaw feels that it is going to be an ideal occasion for his current side Leeds United to kick on.


“Taking away the occasion for me of it being a former team, I just think it’s another chance for us to put another good performance in at home and kick on.”


Brentford lost on Thursday evening, going down to a 2-0 defeat away at Tottenham Hotspur and they have now won just one of their last five games.
