PABLO HERNANDEZ retains his place in the Leeds United side for today’s Championship trip to Nottingham Forest as head coach Garry Monk makes ten changes to the team that started Tuesday night’s EFL Cup clash at Kenilworth Road.

As expected, Monk has reverted to almost the same line up that started last weekend’s 2-0 win at Sheffield Wednesday, expect for Hernandez taking the place of Alex Mowatt, likely on the left hand side of midfield.

Kemar Roofe has to make do with being named as a substitute, despite impressing when starting at Luton, and when coming off the bench to set up Chris Wood’s goal at Hillsborough.

Mowatt started that game instead but is now benched, along with Pontus Jannson, Kalvin Phillips, Souleymane Doukara, Lewie Coyle and Marco Silvestri.

From the team that started at Luton, Luke Murphy, Matt Grimes, Sol Bamba and new left back prospect Tyler Denton drop out altogether.

Toumani Diagouraga is once again nowhere to be seen.

Leeds United team v Forest: Green, Ayling, Cooper, Bartley, Taylor, Bridcutt, Vieira, Hernandez, Sacko, Antonsson, Wood. Subs: Silvestri, Coyle, Jansson, Phillips, Mowatt, Roofe, Doukara.
