    Leeds United - v - Nottingham Forest ***Matchday Thread***




    Samu Saiz is expected to return to Leeds' starting line-up against managerless Nottingham Forest, live on Sky Sports Football.

    The Spanish playmaker was not risked from the start as the Whites slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Birmingham on Saturday, having struggled with a calf problem, but he came on to good effect and is likely to regain his place.

    Ronaldo Vieira missed the game at St Andrew's after sustaining a knock against Burton and he will be assessed.

    Boss Thomas Christiansen will hope to have Eunan O'Kane back in his squad after he also missed the trip to the Midlands.

    Nottingham Forest caretaker manager Gary Brazil could bring Liam Bridcutt back into his side for the trip to the midfielder's former club.

    Brazil will take charge after Mark Warburton was sacked on New Year's Eve after nine months at the helm, and could make changes after Saturday's defeat.

    It is thought Bridcutt was absent from Saturday's 1-0 defeat at home to Sunderland as he is one yellow card away from a second suspension of the season.

    David Vaughan replaced him against the Black Cats after returning from a knock and will hope to be involved once again, while Daryl Murphy also came back into the Reds line-up at the weekend and could keep his place.

    Leeds haven't won both league matches against Forest in a single season since 1971/72 when they were managed by Don Revie.

    Forest have lost their last two league games against Leeds since a run of eight without defeat between December 2012 and August 2016.

    Leeds have won their last two home league matches 1-0 - they haven't won three in a row by that score since October 1980.

    Forest have kept one clean sheet in their last away 19 matches in all competitions, a 1-0 win at Sunderland in September 2017.

    The Whites have won each of their last six league matches played on a Monday in the month of January, most recently a 3-0 win over Rotherham in January last year.

    Prutton's prediction

    That was a hugely frustrating defeat for Leeds against Birmingham after such a good run of form. But there will always be setbacks in the Championship and Nottingham Forest at home presents a great opportunity for them to bounce back.

    Forest - who have now sacked Mark Warburton - have been on a difficult run themselves but I fancy them to earn a draw.


    3 - 0 Leeds (if Saiz starts ffs).

    MOT.

    Despite the sh1te tactics from TC and performance from the players at Birmingham I fully expect a 2/3 nil win.

    I can understand why TC went with the lineup he did vs Birmingham, but now at home with a fully fit Saiz again, we should be too strong for forest, as I said, if we play our best, we will win

    A thrashing of the scabs would be a great way to start the new year

    It's very likely to be another tough close impossible to relax and enjoy afternoon, decided by the odd goal. I just hope to fk that goal is in our favour, like it was for Norwich and Hull

    Think you could be right there..but like you say as long as the goal is in Leeds favour that's all that matters.
