Huddersfield V Forest - Match Preview

The games are coming thick & fast for Forest, with a second away game in 4 days - this time to meet Huddersfield Town in the Championship.

This latest fixture will be Forest's 5th in just 13 days followed by an FA Cup 5th Round trip to Bramall Lane to face Nigel Clough`s Blades on Sunday.

Mark Robins brought Huddersfield Town Trentside on the opening day of the season, when Forest ran out 1-0 winners, with Cohen & Lansbury combining for the latter to score.

Despite the congested fixture list, Forest should still be in confident mood, given that they are now 15 games unbeaten in all competitions - although, they have drawn their last 4 away games in the Championship. This included the 1-1 draw at Bloomfield Road, with Keogh equalising in the 86th minute, cancelling out the opener - a first league goal for Lascelles.

Huddersfield Town left it late, but Adam Clayton scored in the 85th minute to seal a victory over Wigan and earn a valuable 3 points for the Terriers, who had lost all of their previous 4 games.


TEAM NEWS:

Huddersfield:

Former Red, Joel Lynch will be keen to play against his former club having returned to the starting line up in the 1-0 victory over Wigan. He was joined by Adam Hammill, Jonathan Hogg & James Vaughan - all of whom have suffered with injuries of late. Martin Paterson missed the Wigan game due to illness, but should be included in Mark Robins`s squad.

Forest:

Forest`s injury list just keeps on getting longer - as they remain without long term absentees Chris Cohen, Dexter Blackstock, Kelvin Wilson, David Vaughan & Henri Lansbury. Eric Lichaj has a groin problem which is expected to keep him out for 3 weeks and Djamel Abdoun may still be struggling with the injury picked up at Preston.

Of Forest`s January signings, Danny Fox, Jack Hobbs & Rafik Djebbour all started against Blackpool but we have yet to see Kevin Gomis feature in a match day squad.

Billy Davies may look to shuffle the pack slightly to ensure he keeps the squad fresh, but possibly to revert to the favoured 4-2-3-1 formation - with Jamie Paterson eager to return to the starting line up.

The match will be referee`d by Nigel Miller, who has officiated only 8 games this season, none of which have featured Forest or Huddersfield & is only the second game he will have managed at Championship level. He has dished out 14 yellow & no red cards to date.

Forest will again start as marginal favourites by the Bookies, but the combination of fixture & injury lists may start to take their toll. Once again, given I`ll risk the nipper`s pocket money on 1-1.

Come On You Reds!!!
