LUFC Nottingham Forest v Leeds Match Preview
Leeds United travel to Nottingham Forest on Sunday for a lunchtime kick off, with both sides looking for their first points of the season.
Forest came close to promotion last season when they finished third, before losing in the semi finals of the play offs to Blackpool.
They seem to be still suffering a hang over and have lost their first two games of the season.
On the opening day of the season, they were beaten 1-0 at Burnley. They followed this up with a 2-1 defeat at League Two side Bradford City on Tuesday.
The Whites also lost their opening game of the season when they were defeated 2-1 at home by Derby County.
On Tuesday night, they bounced back with a comfortable 4-0 home win in the Carling Cup v Lincoln City.
The two sides have met on a regular basis since their first meeting in 1921.
They have met on 40 occasions at the City Ground with Forest enjoying the most success with 17 wins to Leeds 7 and 16 draws.
Five of the last ten games between the sides at Forest have ended in a draw.
Leeds are unbeaten on their last four visits to Nottingham and won on their last visit in 2007 2-1, thanks to a last minute winner from Jermaine Beckford.
