Match preview: Forest vs Huddersfield in association with Football Index

27 June 2020

Check out all you need to know as Nottingham Forest get set to take on Huddersfield Town on Sunday with the match preview, in association with Football Index.

Nottingham Forest return to The City Ground in very different circumstances on Sunday as they entertain Huddersfield Town (kick-off 2.15pm).

A normally packed-out City Ground will be empty as the match is being played behind closed doors, but Sabri Lamouchi's side will feel the support from the fans from home as they go in search of a vital three points.

Huddersfield lost out 2-0 to Wigan on their return to action last weekend and Danny Cowley's side will be looking for an equally-important victory at the other end of the Championship table. 

Team news

Samba Sow and Ben Watson are both available for selection and could be involved for the first time since the restart. Adama Diakhaby will miss out, however, as he is ineligible to face his parent club.

From the opposition

Huddersfield Town Manager Danny Cowley is keen to show a true representation of his side against Nottingham Forest as his side look to bounce back from a 2-0 defeat against Wigan last weekend.


He said: “We’ve prepared really well, and I trust in them (the players) as people. When we have had bad days we’ve always responded. We worked hard this week to try and find the right response come Sunday.

"I have huge faith in myself, Nicky, the management team and the players. We are determined. I’ve got the most trust I’ve had in this group since I’ve been at the football club.

"There's no hiding place from last Saturday. We take the criticism. We will keep it close and use it to drive us.

"We want to show a true representation of us on Sunday. It's time for us to make sure we respond with actions and not just words."
