Leeds United travel to Nottingham Forest this weekend in what is a big game between two of the sides looking to earn promotion from the Sky Bet Championship and into the Premier League.
The Reds and the Whites both look capable of earning a top two place this season but for much of the year it has looked as though Leeds, and West Brom, would be good enough to run away with it.
Both have stumbled in recent weeks, though, and it seems clear that the likes of Forest have now got a real chance of spoiling the party.
Leeds need to show up this weekend, then, and make a statement and it remains to be seen just who will play for them at the City Ground.
Ryan Edmondson won’t be featuring, though, with Marcelo Bielsa suggesting that he at least impressed once before injury – though his under-23 performances weren’t good enough…
Now talking about Edmondson. Says his performances for the Under-23s "were never enough to be considered" for the first team. Then, in his last training session, he was excellent – but injured his knee and needed surgery.

He impressed just before injury so let’s take a look at the reaction to that:
He needs to get out of that nasty habit of making the ball go into the goal.

Having watched those games, Edmondson never looked good enough.
