Despite a hectic schedule Gary Monk has a fully fit team, with the exception of Gaetano Berardi, for Saturday’s trip to Nottingham.

After rotating his team for the mid-week cup game with Luton, the Leeds head coach is expected to make a number of changes.

Forest are likely to rest their top striker, Britt Assombalonga, as the 23 year old continues to recover from his hamstring injury.

The possible absence of Assombalonga will be well received by the Leeds supporters, with the striker scoring four goals in his last four league games.

Forest manager, Philippe Montanier, could give his new signing, Vladimir Stojkovic a debut start following the goalkeepers recent move from Maccabi Haifa.

Over the past few years, Leeds have struggled to pick up points at the City Ground. Out of the last 20 league meetings, the Whites have picked up two victories and 11 draws.

You can listen to the game live on BBC Radio Leeds from 15:00.
