Nottingham Forest travel to Huddersfield Town this evening looking to arrest their woeful form and score their first goal of the season.

The Reds have lost all three games they have played this season to Barnsley in the League Cup, QPR and Cardiff in the Championship.


If Forest are to begin winning games and fighting the demons of last season they must find the way to goal sooner rather than later.

Ahead of tonight’s trip to West Yorkshire, we looked at the team that could line up against the Terriers.

In goal and back four

Brice Samba is likely to keep his place in goal, with Abdoulaye Diallo possibly set to come in on the bench ahead of Jordan Smith.

There could be two changes at the back from last weekend’s defeat to Cardiff at the City Ground.

Cyrus Christie looks set to come in ahead of Carl Jenkinson at right-back, with the on-loan Fulham man now settled into the squad.

At centre-back, Scott McKenna should make his debut following his £3 million transfer from Aberdeen.

He will probably partner Tobias Figueiredo, with Joe Worrall set to be out for five weeks with a foot problem.

At left-back, Yuri Ribeiro will probably get another chance to shine.


Harry Arter has arrived from Bournemouth this week and could go straight into the team.

That means one of Ryan Yates or Jack Colback making way and Sabri Lamouchi could go for the tried and tested option in Colback.

The 22-year-old academy graduate played alright against Cardiff City last weekend but on paper, the midfield axis of Colback and Arter should be capable of thriving.

In attack

Joe Lolley could miss out on a reunion against his former club after hobbling off last week.

Even if he is fit he could be set for a place on the bench, with academy starlet Alex Mighten handed a start.

Luke Freeman was brilliant last week and should start as the No.10, with Sammy Ameobi on the left-hand side.

In attack, Lamouchi might have a dilemma.

Lyle Taylor played well following his early introduction last week but his inclusion would mean dropping Lewis Grabban.

Given that the £6 million man has worn the armband so far this season, he’ll probably get another go as the lone striker.

Here is how tonight’s team might look:
