REASON FOR LEEDS UNITED VS NOTTINGHAM FOREST BETTING TIPS

There haven’t been many occasions over the past decade and a half where Leeds United have gone into a game where the opposition club is the one that could be said to be in a deeper state of chaos, but that is very much the case on Wednesday evening.

Leeds went down to a 3-2 defeat at Barnsley on Saturday evening, a result that saw them slip to 4th in the table. However, there is a rare air of stability at the club at present and they are currently on a fine run of form at Elland Road, having won five matches on the spin without conceding a goal there.

Having fired manager Philippe Montanier, Nottingham Forest started life under caretaker boss Gary Brazil with a 1-0 win over Bristol City at the weekend. The victory ended an eight-match winless run in all competitions for Forest.

Even so, Forest fans protested outside the City Ground before kick-off against the deeply unpopular owner Fawaz Al Hasawi following the latest failed takeover of the club.

To make a difficult situation even worse, just a few days earlier captain Henri Lansbury was sold to Aston Villa for a fee believed to be in the region of £2.75 million.

Leeds should be more solid defensively than was the case at Oakwell, with Pontus Jansson due to return to partner Kyle Bartley at the heart of the defence, enabling Luke Ayling to revert to his more familiar right-back role.

It all points to a Leeds victory and the 4/5 on offer with bet365 for a home win looks pretty decent value under the circumstances.

In terms of a Leeds United v Nottingham Forest Correct Score tip, a 2-0 home win at 15/2 with Paddy Power could be worth a punt taking account of the home team having their favoured central defensive partnership back in tandem.

Leeds tend to score the majority of their goals after the break, with 13 of their 19 at Elland Road this season coming in the 2nd half. With Forest having conceded 16 of their 26 away goals after the interval, it does suggest that the 4/1 available with Betfred on the Half-time/ Full-time Double Result of Draw/ Leeds United is worthy of consideration.

In Chris Wood, Leeds has the division’s second highest-scorer, with the Kiwi international having netted 16 goals this term. At 6/5 with SkyBet, he looks a decent bet for an Anytime Goalscorer.


LEEDS UNITED VS NOTTINGHAM FOREST STATS

Leeds United only average 1.36 goals per game (GPG) at Elland Road in the Championship this season, but they only concede at a rate of 0.64 GPG. Forest’s away goal count stands at 1.14 GPG, whilst conceding at a rate of 1.86 GPG.

Both Teams To Score (BTTS) has occurred in 36% of Leeds’ Championship matches at Elland Road this term and in 57% of Forest’s away games.


LEEDS UNITED TEAM NEWS

Pontus Jansson is available following a two-match suspension, with Luke Ayling likely to revert to his more familiar right-back role as a consequence. Eunan O’Kane is pushing for a starting role after recovering from a groin problem. Charlie Taylor is nearing full fitness, but is again set to miss out after an Achilles problem.


NOTTINGHAM FOREST TEAM NEWS

Defender Matt Mills went off with a groin injury in the win over Bristol City and is set for a spell on the sidelines. Winger Mustapha Carayol could start.
