Leeds v Nottingham Forest Match Preview, Free Bets & Betting Tips

Leeds will be desperate to make amends when they host Nottingham Forest at Elland Road on Tuesday evening.

A 4-1 hammering at the hands of Arsenal last weekend has left them in a rather precarious position just above the Premier League’s drop zone by virtue of goal difference.

Forest are also in danger of being sucked into a relegation dogfight, having managed just a solitary win in their past eight league outings.

It could well be a make-or-break few weeks for Forest as April also sees them take in clashes against Liverpool, Manchester United, and Brighton.

But they haven’t been good travellers this term, earning an unenviable joint-division-low six away points, and they will need to rectify that.

It will be fascinating to see how things transpire in this one, and to guide you through, we have handpicked a couple of juicy tips for you to mull over ahead of kick-off.

Forest’s woes to deepen

Intriguingly, this will be the first time Leeds have hosted Forest in the Premier League since 1999.

In the corresponding clash at the City Ground back in February, a Brennan Johnson first-half goal proved to be the difference between the two sides.

But aside from garnering the fewest points on the road this term, Forest have also scored the fewest away goals (four) too, and you wonder how things will get better.

On the injury front, Leeds will assess Wilfried Gnonto and defender Max Wober. However, Javier Gracia will demand a huge improvement from the display against the Gunners where his side were found wanting at the back, and they were cut apart.

Leeds will be eager to respond, and while it might be scrappy at times, they should get over the line. For my first pick, I have gone with the Correct Score section and a 1-0 win for Leeds, a price that is available at 11/2 with Paddy Power.

Our correct score prediction

Jack Harrison to make the difference

Leeds need their big stars to step up, and Jack Harrison is never afraid to shirk a challenge.

Four goal involvements (a goal and three assists) in each of Leeds’ past four league goals would suggest his influence shouldn’t be understated.

Although he has only netted four times in the league this term, Harrison could add to that tally against Forest.

Harrison has a knack at times for popping up in the right place at the right time, and he could well prove to be the difference maker against Forest.

If you fancy Harrison to net the only goal of the game, he is at an enticing 9/1 to do so with William Hill.
