LEEDS United legend Eddie Gray sees no reason why the Whites cannot win at Nottingham Forest this weekend.

Forest are odds on favourites to condemn an out of form United side to more Championship misery on Saturday evening - one week on from a 1-0 loss at home to Fulham.

Leeds have been even worse on their travels where they have lost seven out of ten games and Forest sit ninth in the table and just five points off the play-offs.

However, Gray is aware that Stuart Pearce’s side are not in great form themselves having picked up just two points from their last three games.

After a blistering start to the season, the City Ground side have followed a 2-1 loss at Birmingham with draws against Charlton and Rotherham - the 1-1 Addicks draw coming on their own turf - and Gray thinks Forest are vulnerable.

Gray reasoned: “Forest are not going great and they drew 0-0 at Rotherham last weekend.

“They were beating teams at the start of the season very well and they were everybody’s favourites but they fell away and they’re not playing great themselves.

“There’s no reason why we can’t go there and get some sort of result.

“We’ve not got to worry about them and we’ve got to look after ourselves.

“We’ve got to get our ship in order, that’s the most important thing and if we do that we’ve got an opportunity.”
