Forest will be looking to bounce back and get three points on the board after a run of four games without a win. The Reds were well beaten by Sheffield Wednesday last time out and Sabri Lamouchi's side will be looking for a response.

Huddersfield have found life tough back in the second-tier after two seasons in the Premier League, but new manager Danny Cowley has injected some positivity into their form, despite just one win in their last seven outings. 

Team news

Yuri Ribeiro, Samba Sow, Carl Jenkinson, Yohan Benalouane and Michael Hefele are all nearing a return to action, edging closer to a first-team recall but Saturday's game may come too soon for them.

From the opposition

Huddersfield manager Danny Cowley said that Nottingham Forest are among the best teams in the division and expects a tough contest on Saturday.


He said: “Forest have had an excellent start to the season but a bit more of a difficult period just recently, no doubt they will be highly motivated after the back of a disappointing result on Saturday against Sheffield Wednesday.

“I think that they have goals in their team, they can use different formations and they like to get control in possession and want to try and dominate the ball, but they can also carry a threat on the counter attack.

“Certainly, with the ball they’re one of the best teams in the division.”
