“Leeds will have a bit too much for Nottingham Forest, they have got some exciting players Leeds, new striker, new signings in the window, Bamford is back scoring goals,” as quoted by talkSPORT EDGE. (4 February)

Now Marsch has been backed to the fullest in the January transfer window, there can’t be any more excuses as to why points aren’t being won in the Premier League.
Problem areas at full-back and centre-forward have been sorted and the return to form and fitness of Patrick Bamford has also helped the squad massively.
Even the Whites engine room has been bolstered with the signing of Weston McKennie, a deal no one saw coming at the start of the January transfer window.
Marsch must quickly get his new signings integrated and playing to his pressing music, there is no time to spare in the hectic and harsh Premier League schedule.
Recent outings have suggested that the team are on an upwards trajectory of form, but Nottingham Forest will be a telling test of where this squad is really at.
A win at the City Ground would be a nice coup for Marsch and co and it’s one Leeds United will be desperate to pull off.
