Who starts for Nottingham Forest against Leeds?

A selection headache is something Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton faces as he prepares to welcome in-form Leeds United to the City Ground on Saturday evening.

The Whites arrive on Trentside unbeaten following the summer arrival of Thomas Christiansen as their new head coach, and sit a place below the Reds in the early Championship table, with a fine 2-0 victory at Sunderland under their belts last time out.

Forest for their part, produced a superb performance to dump Premier League Newcastle United out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening, with the manager making six changes to the side that were 2-1 winners against Middlesbrough last weekend.

Jason Cummings made the headlines, bagging a wonderful brace in the space of two first half minutes, and was joined by Danny Fox, Eric Lichaj, Ben Brereton and Jack Hobbs who all produced strong cases to be involved against Leeds.

New signing Liam Bridcutt is expected to come straight into the Reds starting XI to face his former club, with David Vaughan ruled out through injury, and that’s one dilemma among many for the Reds chief, who has been so impressed with the impact those returning players made at St James’ Park in midweek.

Warburton must also decide whether to include Tyler Walker in his matchday squad, given that the youngster impressed so much in netting the winner on Tyneside, while longer term absentees Chris Cohen, Jamie Ward and Matty Cash remain sidelined through injury.
