Forest make the short trip up the M1 to face Huddersfield Town on Tuesday, high in confidence after three straight wins. The Terriers themselves will be in good heart fresh after their 2-0 win at home to Luton at the weekend.
Last seasons game at the City Ground ended with Forest thumping them 5-1. The game at the Galpharm ended in a 1-1 draw.
Huddersfield currently lie a place below the Reds in 9th on the same points, but with an inferior goal difference of -3. Forest of course also have the luxury of a game in hand over most of the division.
Huddersfield Town Team News:
The Terriers started the season with as many injury worries as Forest. Much the same as us they are gradually coming back. Ronnie Wallwork and Richard Keogh will also be available for Andy Ritchie to choose from.
Player to watch: Danny Cadamarteri
He’s been around a bit, from Everton to Doncaster and finally at the Galpharm. He picked up his first goal for the Terriers on Saturday in the win against Luton.
Nottingham Forest Team News:
Forest have no new injuries to report. The big question is whether manager Colin Calderwood will keep the same lineup that done us proud at Huish Park and whether Krissy Commons has done enough to get into the starting eleven.
Player to watch: Junior Agogo.
The man is on fire at the moment and is a veritable goal machine. He bagged his first hatrick against the Gills a fortnight ago and helped himself to what may turn out to be goal of the season on Saturday in the 3-0 win at Yeovil.
Match Facts & Stats
There’s a long and rich history between the two sides dating back to 1911. The Terriers have just had the better of things over the years, with Forest winning 10, drawing 10 and losing 16.
1-2. Both sides performing well at the moment. I’d be happy with a draw, but I really fancy us at the moment and we can score goals!
