Terriers v Forest: 2nd Round Preview.

Forest take to the road again, for the 4th time in 6 matches as they face managerless Huddersfield for a place in the 3rd round of the Capital One Cup.

Vital Quotes:

Mark Lillis, Caretaker Manager told their official club site:

"Stuart Pearce is a leader and I can`t imagine him taking any game easy; he`ll put a side out that is tough to beat. They`ve got to the top of the League and he`ll want to keep that momentum going.'

Huddersfield Town Team News:

Raddi Majewski is ineligible to play due to the terms of his loan agreement.

Former Reds, Lee Peltier and Joel Lynch are injury doubts, whilst Anthony Gerrad remains a long term casualty.

Player to watch: Nahki Wells

The former Bradford striker has already scored 4 this season for the Terriers.

James Vaughan, Huddersfield's top scorer for the last 2 seasons, is also on the comeback trail after injury.

Nottingham Forest Team News:

Dexter Blackstock has still not resumed full training and Jack Hobbs is unlikely to be risked after complaining of pain in his ankle.

Kelvin Wilson, Jamaal Lascelles, David Vaughan and Henri Lansbury are all looking to get involved, after their injuries - as Pearce may look to rest a few of those that have featured in the 5 games in just 2 weeks.

Player to watch: Jack Hunt

Jack returns to his former club, so he will be keen to impress.

The attacking full back set up Matty Fryatt's winner at Bournemouth - a repeat of that will do nicely.

Match Facts & Stats

Forest are unbeaten with 4 wins from 5 and start as the bookie's favourites.

Huddersfield have won 2, lost 2 and drawn 1, scoring 9 but conceding 12.

The last meeting between the teams saw Forest run our 0-3 winners with Jamie Paterson bagging a brace.

Ref Watch:

Mark Brown gets the job of officiating the clash. In 4 games this season, he has handed out just 6 yellow cards.

Match Prediction:

Stuart Pearce has set his charges the task of remaining unbeaten until they reach the international break. Cup games rarely follow the form book, but Forest may have just enough to progress (1-2).

Next Fixtures:

Forest face another away trip on Saturday, this time just up the M1 for the televised clash against Sheffield Wednesday, before a 2 week break to recharge the batteries.
