Huddersfield Preview

18 February 2013

Billy Davies is preparing his side for their second home game in quick succession when Huddersfield Town visit The City Ground tomorrow evening (kick-off 7.45pm).

Davies' men were unfortunate not to take all three points against Bolton on Saturday but all eyes are now on The Terriers who also have a new manager at the helm.

Mark Robins, like Davies, took charge of his new club for the first time at the weekend but could do nothing to stop Wigan Athletic from knocking his side out of the FA Cup.

And his focus will now be firmly set on extending the three-point gap which currently separates the Yorkshiremen from the relegation zone.

Neither side are reporting any fresh concerns.

Forest - 19th
Huddersfield - 4th, League One (Play-Off winners)

Lee Glover

The Scottish striker was a product of Forest's youth academy and first broke into the team in 1987. He went on to spend seven years at The City Ground, scoring nine league goals in 76 appearances for the club.

In 1997 he made 11 appearances for Huddersfield - on loan from Rotherham - but failed to find the net.

His playing career, which saw him claim three Scottish Under 21 caps, also took him to Leicester, Port Vale and Macclesfield Town.

He then went into management with Corby Town and Grantham Town before going on to work under Nigel Clough at Derby.
