Leeds Utd Confirmed XI: First Team Return For Sharp

Leeds United have confirmed their starting eleven for the game against Nottingham Forest on their official Twitter account.

The Whites travel to Forest having lost against Fulham in the Championship in their last game.

Since then, manager Neil Redfearn has been talking about rejigging the first team, although there are not necessarily many options available to him to change things.

There is no natural width in the side, as the situation has been since the departures of Max Gradel and Robert Snodgrass over two seasons ago.

Unsurprisingly, Leeds top scorer Mirco Antenucci retains his place in the first team for the game.

The newly bleach blonde Marco Silvestri continues in net, having been ever present since the start of the season.

Stephen Warnock starts despite having picked up a knock in the game against Fulham, which Leeds lost 1-0.

Sam Byram also plays, and will hope to continue his recent good form in the league.

Billy Sharp also starts for the first time in an extended period.
