Nottingham Forest face Huddersfield Town tonight in the FA Cup and the winners will take on Liverpool later this month.

The Reds have defeated Arsenal and Leicester to reach this stage of the competition and tonight’s stakes are high.

If Forest set up a date with their old rivals from the seventies and eighties, it will be the first meeting since 1999.

Fans will be desperate to see Jurgen Klopp’s men on Trentside but the Reds must take care of business tonight first.

Ahead of the game, we look at how the Reds could line up at the City Ground tonight.

The Forest rearguard

Brice Samba has completed his three-match suspension and should return to replace Ethan Horvath between the posts.

At the back, Steve Cooper is unlikely to risk a change.

As a result, Scott McKenna, Joe Worrall and Steve Cook should all start.

The Forest engine room and wing-backs

Max Lowe will return to the team and is likely to replace Jack Colback.

The ex-Newcastle man will drop out with Cooper likely to hand him something of a rest after a strong performance on Friday.

Djed Spence will play on the right, with Ryan Yates and James Garner pairing up in midfield.

Leading the Forest line

Keinan Davis was brilliant against Sheffield United and he will keep his place in the attack.

Brennan Johnson picks himself given that he’s got 17 goal contributions this season.

There could be a chance in the attack though, with Joe Lolley getting a start against his former club.

He came on during Friday’s game and looked lively during his brief cameo.

Here is how tonight’s Forest team could look:
