Nottingham Forest face Huddersfield this afternoon looking to secure a vital win to continue climbing the table.

The Reds should be safe now and go into today’s game hoping to make Championship mathematically certain for next season.

Forest drew 0-0 with Bristol City last weekend in a game in which the Reds probably should have won.

The point came on the back of wins against Cardiff and QPR and continued a mini run of unbeaten games for the Reds.

Ahead of this afternoon’s showdown, we looked at the team which Chris Hughton could pick to face the Terriers.

In goal and back four

Brice Samba is firmly established as the club’s number one goalkeeper and will remain between the posts today.

Cyrus Christie and Tyler Blackett have been impressive of late and both should keep their places at full-back.

Both Joe Worrall and Scott McKenna are fit and will get the nod to play at centre-back and continue their blossoming partnership.

Midfield

James Garner has been inspirational since checking in during the January transfer window.

 

He looks set to continue in the middle of the park, although a change could be made alongside him.

Ryan Yates started at Ashton Gate but he could be replaced by Cafu today.

The Portuguese performer has worked tirelessly during his maiden campaign in England and could be in line for a recall.

In attack

Alex Mighten has enjoyed a decent run in the team and he should keep his place on the left-hand side.

Sammy Ameobi might be not be fit for a return so Anthony Knockaert could keep his place on the right.

Filip Krovinovic was another attractive January recruit and looks set to keep his place in the No.10 role.

Upfront, Hughton could make a change.

Lewis Grabban has been starting of late but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Glenn Murray return to the fold for this afternoon’s game.

Here is how the Forest team could look today:
