Match preview: Huddersfield vs Forest in association with Football Index

25 September 2020

Check out all you need to know ahead of Nottingham Forest's trip to Huddersfield in the match preview, in association with Football Index.

Nottingham Forest head to West Yorkshire to take on Huddersfield Town looking to get off the mark in the 2020-21 season on Friday night (kick-off 7.45pm).

The Reds have had a disappointing start to the new campaign, suffering back-to-back defeats and will be looking for an improvement at the John Smith's Stadium.

Huddersfield have fared similarly to The Reds, no goals scored, four goals against and no points on the board and will be equally as eager to get their season up and running in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

From the opposition

Huddersfield head coach Carlos Corberan knows that his side will have to be at their best to get a result against Forest. Both sides go into the game pointless and goalless after two league games and Corberan is looking for an all-round performance from The Terriers.

He said: "Nottingham Forest were very close to the play-offs last season and were a strong team last year. They haven't started well, but they have important players offensively. We will have to bring our best to face them.

"We always have the feeling that we can win the next game. Every game is demanding and that's why this competition is special. Our aim is to have the best performance in attack and defence to get some points."
