Match preview: Huddersfield Town vs Nottingham Forest

16 October 2020

Nottingham Forest take to the road on Sunday afternoon as they look to extend their unbeaten start to the season to six games away to Huddersfield Town.

The Reds come into the fixture in fine form as they currently sit top of the FA Women’s National League North having picked up 13 points out of a possible 15. The side most recently cruised to a staggering 7-0 victory at home to Loughborough Foxes as they picked up their fourth consecutive win. A brace apiece from Rosie Axten and Georgia Hewitt helped Forest on their way to victory as Hayley James, Charlotte Greengrass and Katie Middleton add the other three goals. 

Huddersfield only sit two places behind The Reds in the league standings as they have recorded three wins, one draw and suffered one loss. Their most recent outing saw them pick up a 4-2 victory away to Middlesbrough last Sunday. Goals from Brittany Sanderson, Sarah Danby and a brace from Kate Mallin were enough for The Terriers to head back home with all three points.

The Yorkshire side have found the back of the net 13 times in five games this season with Laura Elford, Mallin and Sanderson all sitting top of the team’s scoring chart with three goals each. The Forest defence will be focusing on keeping their front-line quiet on Sunday afternoon and end the side’s record of scoring in every game they’ve played this season. 

No side have scored more goals than Forest this season as The Reds have impressively netted 18 goals in five games. 10 different Trickies have contributed to the team’s goals this season and Forest will be looking to add more to their growing tally on Sunday. Mai Moncaster, Sydnie Naylor and Sophie Tudor have all played key parts in the team’s successful start to the season and will be searching to finally get their first league goal as a Red this weekend.
