A season defining game for Leeds and Nottingham Forest

The Leeds United McFeelgood Factor Sleeper Express for the Premiership, Europe, Infinity & Beyond pulls into Nottingham tomorrow for what promises to be a season defining game. Of course, despite all the talk of a six pointer, there's only three points at stake, but the ramifications of the game promise to have a far greater resonance.

If  Leeds can win this one, I fancy there will be no stopping McDermott's Merry Men; but should Forest prevail, Leeds are likely to find themselves outside the top six at the half way point of the season and so, once again, playing catch up.

However, should Leeds win, dreams of the playoff are likely to be cast aside as thoughts turn to claiming an automatic promotion place. QPR travel to a Watford side buzzing under new manager Sannino, Burnley face a Wigan team that simply have to win to stay in with a shout of promotion, and Derby have a tricky looking game at Barnsley; should all three lose, Leeds will be on their shoulder with a win at the City Ground. And the same applies to Forest should they triumph. And meanwhile, my money is on Leicester to stumble at home to Bolton. 1-1 I reckon.

A draw would be a decent result for Leeds but a victory would really set the cat amongst the Championship pigeons and I expect McDermott's Merry Men to prevail 2-1.

    1. it could be due to some sort of "shock syndrome" due to his club being second bottom of the premier. I also heard that another side affect is you start writing "sensible" after your first mouth full of humble pie and by the last mouth full? you go all silent, stop blowing bubbles and finally, disappear up your own arse.

  5. Oh, dear!! Now the 'King of predictions' is really desperate!! He knows he could stop a Train (even the Leeds United feelgood blah blah blah Train). Everything he predicts goes Pear shaped so he has now stooped to desperately trying to end the Leeds charge by picking them to win!!
    Poor chap! Leeds up, Hammers down. My prediction 6 weeks ago. Looking stronger by the day.

  6. This is one of the two biggest games in the Championship this season. The other is Leeds vs Forest at Elland Road.

  7. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year mate, a draw would be very welcome today but a win would, as you rightly say, make for a very interesting second half to the season. MOT
