SPORTSBEAT | Forest Head To Leeds Looking For Second Win In A Row

Nottingham Forest head to Leeds United this evening, still without a permanent manager, but looking for their second consecutive victory to move them further away from the Championship relegation zone.

The Reds put an end to a poor run of form with a 1-0 win over Bristol City at the weekend under the caretaker management of Gary Brazil, after a run which saw them collect just two points from eight games, leading to Philippe Montanier’s exit.

Brazil will again take charge of Forest with no permanent appointment made, he said “I’m buoyed by the nature of the training sessions, by the commitment of the players and the fans saw that commitment on Saturday.”

“It is important for us that we understand where the fans are in the middle of this. The fans want to see us committed and they want to see some real honesty and we need to ensure that when the fans turn up, they know what they are going to get out of a Forest team.”

“While I am in charge there will be a Forest team that gives a hell of a lot of commitment to the fans and you could see after the win the link between the fans and players was strong and the atmosphere in the changing was first class. We will carry that on into a tough game, Leeds are doing well but it is not insurmountable. The commitment will be there and we look forward to the game enormously.”
