Preview: Leeds United vs. Nottingham Forest

Sports Mole previews the Easter Monday Championship clash between Leeds United and Nottingham Forest.

Nottingham Forest can keep alive their slim hopes of a place in the Championship playoffs when they travel to Leeds United on Easter Monday.

The Reds ended a 12-game winless run by claiming a 1-0 victory against Birmingham City on Saturday afternoon.

They trail sixth-place Brighton & Hove Albion by three points in the table, but with just three games left to play there can be no room for any more slip-ups.

Forest's opponents are a Leeds side who have struggled for form this season, but have won their last two games in the Championship.

The last two meetings between the teams have ended in wins for Forest, including a 2-1 victory at the City Ground last December.

Leeds have Rodolph Austin available again after recovering from an ankle injury, but Sam Byram and Jimmy Kebe are ruled out.

Meanwhile, Forest have no fresh injury worries, with David Vaughan expected to be rested after returning from a three-month layoff at the weekend.
