Leeds team news: Bielsa could consider changes for Nottingham Forest trip

Leeds United will head to the City Ground on New Year’s Day when they look to get their Championship campaign back on track against Nottingham Forest.

The Whites were beaten 2-0 by Hull City at the weekend and Marcelo Bielsa will want to see his side provide an immediate reaction.

According to a match preview by Sky Sports, the Argentine could look to change things from the defeat they suffered at Elland Road and could give some of his fringe players a chance to shine.


Tyler Roberts could start for the Whites after he made his return as a substitute at the weekend following his injury layoff.

The likes of Lewis Baker and Leif Davis could also come into contention to feature on Tuesday afternoon.

However, Patrick Bamford and Liam Cooper are not yet ready to take to the field as they continue to make their way back from knee problems.

The Verdict:

Leeds will want to make a swift return to winning ways and the game against Nottingham Forest could help them to forget about the weekend’s surprise defeat.

As mentioned, Bielsa could look to make a number of significant changes to his side to try and ensure that they get a positive result on New Year’s Day.

However, Forest could also cause the Whites concern, as they look to try and keep their own playoff hopes alive.
