Team news: Forest vs Huddersfield

26 June 2020

The latest team news from the Nottingham Forest dressing room ahead of Sunday’s match against Huddersfield Town at The City Ground.

Sabri Lamouchi has confirmed that there are no injury concerns going into the match on Sunday.

Samba Sow has been in full training having missed the trip to Sheffield Wednesday, and with a full week behind him on the training pitch, could be involved against The Terriers having been missing since the 2-2 draw against West Brom in February.

Ben Watson also missed out on the trip to Hillsborough last weekend, the first time he was absent from a Championship game for The Reds this season, and is expected to return to the line-up.

Brennan Johnson put in an impressive display on his first league start for Forest and will be hoping to keep hold of his place, with John Bostock, Alfa Semedo and Joao Carvalho all pushing for a spot in the side.

Adama Diakhaby, however, will not be involved as he is ineligible to face his parent club.

Huddersfield were without Fraizer Campbell and Steve Mounié for the defeat against Wigan Athletic, which meant top scorer Karlan Grant – who usually operates on the left – was playing in the number nine role.

Town manager Danny Cowley is hopeful that Campbell and Mounié will be available to return.

Emile Smith Rowe has recovered from a minor illness and is back in training, as is Juninho Bacuna who had some cramp in the latter part of the match against Wigan. 

Tommy Elphick remains a long-term absentee for Huddersfield.
