Championship

Hernandez and Roofe must start against Nottingham Forest today

Hernandez and Roofe must start against Nottingham Forest today

Leeds United have been one of the standout performers in the Championship this season, but things just haven’t gone to plan in recent times.

The Whites will be hoping for a positive run of results after returning to winning ways against Ipswich Town at Elland Road last time out.

Interestingly, Leeds will welcome Nottingham Forest to Elland Road in their next Championship fixture. Aitor Karanka’s side have impressed at times this season and have set their sights on a play-off spot, so it won’t be an easy match for the Whites at home.

So, Marcelo Bielsa must get his team selection right by selecting these TWO Leeds United stars…

Pablo Hernandez

Pablo Hernandez has been one of the most consistent performers for Leeds United over the past couple of seasons, with a goal and an assist never too far away.

Indeed, the Spaniard enjoyed a very strong start to the current campaign, scoring a number of goals and grabbing a number of assists. But he has only recently returned to the first team squad due to an injury that kept him out for a period of time, so they’ll be desperate to get the best out of him later on today and for the rest of the season.

Kemar Roofe

Kemar Roofe was on absolute fire towards the start of the current campaign, before suffering an injury that gave Tyler Roberts the opportunity to impress at the pinnacle of the attack.

But, the Whites must now revert to the same style and formation that won them so many games towards the start of the season, which involved the 25-year-old leading the line as the sole striker.

The Englishman managed to find the back of the net last time out against Ipswich Town, so Nottingham Forest could be on the receiving end of a battering later on today if he manages to improve on his performance from the last game.
