No worries for McDermott

Leeds manager Brian McDermott could name an unchanged starting line-up against Nottingham Forest.

McDermott has no new injury or suspension worries as his side chase a third straight league win, although fit-again midfielder Rudy Austin is pushing for a recall following an ankle injury.

Defender Sam Byram and winger Jimmy Kebe both remain sidelined with respective hamstring injuries, while Aidy White, Noel Hunt and Alex Mowatt are among those also hoping to return to the starting line-up.

Leeds have lost four of their last six home matches.

Nottingham Forest caretaker-boss Gary Brazil may want to keep changes to a premium.

Brazil made four alterations as Forest boosted their play-off hopes with a home win against Birmingham on Saturday, with midfielder David Vaughan starting for the first time in almost three months after recovering from a knee injury.

Vaughan was replaced early in the second half by Jonathan Greening and may be rested, while Gonzalo Jara, Kelvin Wilson and Henri Lansbury are hoping to return to the squad.

Forest secured their first win in 13 league games on Saturday and are three points adrift of the top six.
