Leeds United v Nottingham Forest- Saturday 3pm, Elland Road :

Nottingham Forest travel to Elland Road today looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Sky Bet Championship to 13 games.

The Reds face a Leeds United side who have won two of their last three, including a 2-1 triumph at Bolton in the FA Cup last weekend.

Despite the unbeaten run, Forest must win to have any chance of maintaining their play-off hopes after their poor start to the season.

Nelson Oliveira’s poor form in front of goal away from The City Ground is concerning, having scored just once on the road all season.

However, Forest will take heart from the fantastic 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough on their last away outing.

There are no fresh injury worries for the trip to West Yorkshire, but the transfer embargo and failure to land a loan signing on deadline day means there will be no new faces in the squad for the game.

Notts County v Hartlepool United- Saturday 3pm, Meadow Lane:

Notts County host a Hartlepool United side in poor form, having lost the first two home games under Micky Fullarton.

The Magpies have won their last two on the road, but haven’t won since December on home turf which has seriously dented their hopes of an immediate return to League One.

County’s shaky defence received a deadline day boost by signing Doncaster’s Gary Mackenzie on a months loan and is expected to make his debut against the North East side.

Struggling Pools have a dismal goal scoring record, having scored the fewest in the league, which may give The Magpies’ defence- who have conceded 46 league goals- some reprieve.

County lie 15th in League Two, and are up against a battle against Ronnie Moore’s side who sit just one place above the relegation zone

Mansfield Town v Morecambe- Saturday 3pm, Field Mill: 

Mansfield face out-of-form Morcambe at Field Mill on Saturday to continue their play-off push.

A win away at Crawley last weekend elevated The Stags into the top seven, above Wycombe who have two games in hand and sit just one point and one place behind.

Mansfield will be aiming to build on their two successive league victories, having suffered a shaky start to the year.

With two difficult games against Oxford and Plymouth to come in the next couple of weeks, they will be looking to make this game count as the five teams below are all within four points of them. 

Manager Adam Murray had the luxury of making James Baxendale’s loan move from Walsall  permanent, having saw  Nicky Hunt and Nathan Thomas leave on deadline day.deals
